Gratitude: A powerful elixir for the soul

For a few seconds, close your eyes and try to imagine the warmth of a soft, cozy blanket during a cold night when you feel alone and maybe anxious. What thought comes to mind? Or what sensation do you feel?

Let me guess.

You feel a sense of calm and safety while trying to sleep off, right? Maybe you began to feel a little bit less anxious as the blanket provides a sensation of peace, warmth, and relaxation for your bare skin. Now your mind is beginning to feel relaxed, and there you go sleeping off like a baby.  

Gratitude can be this warm and soft blanket that helps you reduce anxiety and create a sense of calm and safety.  As we go through and try to navigate the stress and threat of life, we tend to battle with the flight and fight dilemma.

Being under this constant pressure can cause one to start experiencing a sense of threat and feel unsafe and then this could lead to more drastic health challenges like rising blood pressure, irregular  heart rate, etc.

Even though the power of gratitude has not been fully tapped into in clinical practice, one can at a glance tell that gratitude enhances mental health and provides succor for our souls. The world will be a much happier place with very healthy people if everyone finds something to be grateful for daily. 

If you want to be more emotionally stable and unlock an authentic version of yourself, then learn the powerful magic of gratitude.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
