The Neuroscience of Gratitude

Is gratitude good for my Brain?
Yes it is. In fact, it is one of the easiest things you can do to boost the “feel good” neurotransmitter release in your brain and it is proven by Science to work.
What are you grateful for? Say it to yourself, “What am I grateful for?” Now, come up with 5 things, not a million things, just five. Perhaps you have friends, family, or children to be grateful for. Maybe it is as simple as the sun is shining or I have fresh air to breathe. The reality is, no matter how bad your day is, there is always something to be grateful for. Practicing gratitude is especially important if you suffer from anxiety or depression. Your brain needs a boost in this direction.
