It’s that time of year when thankfulness and gratitude are top of mind. But what is gratitude and why is it so important? Read on to see why and learn ways of expressing gratitude each day.
What is Gratitude?
Gratitude is a process of affirming good things that have happened to us or that we’ve received. It can also involve acknowledging the value that others add to our lives.
Why Is Expressing Gratitude Important?
Practicing expressing gratitude is important for a multitude of reasons. For one, it helps spread positive feelings. When you acknowledge things to be thankful for, you focus on the positive aspects of your life rather than the negative. This allows you to bring a more positive outlook to all your interactions which helps spread positivity.
Expressing gratitude has been linked to improved health, strength when dealing with adversity, decreased stress and can even help you build stronger relationships with those around you. It has also been linked to deeper, higher-quality sleep.

If the last year or so has taught us anything, it’s to be thankful for what we have. Incorporating some of these gratitude techniques into your daily routine can help you focus on the positive all year round.
