That may be no surprise to anyone who’s studied all the benefits of practicing gratitude.
But there was one thing I read in their research that was shocking which few people know about yet…
Changes in Brain:
It turns out; a gratitude practice creates changes in the brain- the medial prefrontal cortex. This area is associated with social cognition and behavior. The most surprising part is that these changes lasted even three months after the study period.
Indeed, many studies over the past decade have found that people who consciously count their blessings tend to be happier and less depressed.
The finding of changes in the brain means a gratitude practice could potentially have long-lasting benefits for our brain and mental health.
Ways to Heal Faster:
With the pressure of our fast-paced world, we are always looking for ways to heal faster and derive the greatest possible benefit from treatment in the shortest amount of time.
Therefore, many healthcare providers, especially in the mental health, are using research-backed approaches to complement psychological counseling with additional activities that are not too taxing for our clients but yield high results, and gratitude practice is one such activity.
Over the years I have used this technique to complement treatment for many of my clients and seen its power. I have also seen its benefits in my own life as I have practiced gratitude journaling for more than 14 years. I started after I broke my right hand and realized the importance of my left hand. (Read more about my story in the book “Stress to Joy“.)
Now, to help more people get educated, motivated and guided to start, resume or deepen their gratitude practice, I have developed this tool; “Stress to Joy Guided Gratitude Journal.”
