Gratitude is a foundational strength. When you feel gratitude, a lot of other strengths can be built on top. For instance, the ability to love and be loved would be difficult, if not impossible, without gratitude.

Gratitude is the thankful appreciation of things received, whether tangible or intangible. It helps us connect with something outside ourselves, often transcendent and larger than ourselves. I have been practicing a gratitude exercise, and you can do it too. It's very simple. Each night I reflect on my day. I recall three things I'm grateful for and write them in a gratitude journal. The things I'm grateful for are those amazing moments, wonderful conversations with friends and family, or even just watching birds or squirrels going about their business. It might be a moment of beauty that is striking or uplifting.

Maria Teresa Frezet terapeuta olistica's insight:

Very nice article (based on scientific reserch) about importance of gratitude. in addition to the mentioned excercises, I would also say:

- "use" other people like a mirror to understand who you are because when for instance you are angry with somebody, it's not the other person's fault but it is a way to feel what kind of emotions you have inside. if you accept to change perspective and start to say "which part of myself can I see through this person/situation?" Then you will rapidly evolve and you will have the key to give a different direction to Life!

Garth Sanginiti's curator insight, July 29, 2013 7:15 PM

"Being grateful for people and things in my life makes me more aware of my own good fortune, and it helps rewire my brain to be more optimistic. If you are feeling down, how blue can you feel if you have a fat journal of things you are grateful for? Writing my gratitude journal keeps me mindful and aware of what's great in my life. I've noticed clients who have practiced this exercise are happier, far less stressed and get through their day with less difficulty than they used to."
