When you turn to gratitude, this super power will help you appreciate people, things, and experiences rather than take them for granted.

Psychologists have discovered feeling grateful boosts happiness and nurtures physical and psychological health. 

When we practice gratitude it has a ripple effect; generosity, caring actions, and compassionate thoughts and feelings flood our brains with a chemical called dopamine. 

Each time we count our blessings (writing or reciting a gratitude list) our brains reward us by giving us a natural high. Because this feeling is uplifting, we become more inclined to give thanks, and also to do good for others.

Studies also show an attitude of gratitude helps shift inner focus from negative emotions including resentment, envy, and criticism to thankfulness, optimism, and equanimity. See Top Reasons to Practice Gratitude for more.

Gratitude and thankfulness can be represented by the color pink. Pink vibes remind us of elegance, grace, sweetness, and tenderness. Pink is a nurturing, supportive color. When we visualize this color, pink energy helps us connect to unconditional love and gentleness. Use bright pink accent pieces to decorate your living and working spaces, or wear it to convey caring and appreciation.
