“Gratitude is a mindset that activates the prefrontal cortex and, in doing so, sets the context of your experience such that you can derive tremendous health benefits.”
Gratitude Practice: Think about when someone was grateful for something you did or image someone else receiving deep and emotional help from someone else.
The most potent form of gratitude is not when you give gratitude, but rather when you receive gratitude. So by doing this mental imagery practice, you are able to imagine someone being thankful for something you have done for them in the past, which results in you feeling good about yourself.
Being grateful for the moment we are currently experiencing can be extremely beneficial for our overall well-being, but you can have an enormous impact on someone you love or a friend by giving that person a compliment about what they have accomplished or how they make you feel.
