Positive emotions, such as gratitude, can benefit our bodies and minds.
Being grateful for what we have (rather than obsessing about what we don't have) helps us in many different aspects of our lives - such as relieving stress, and it reinforces your will to try again when things don't go the way we want.
This exercise can help you start thinking about gratitude. Write your answers to the questions in the blanks below or on a page in a notebook, because writing down feelings of gratitude can boost those strong feelings.
Try to make it your daily routine, set aside time each day to observe and appreciate what is good in your life.
