Gratitude - Why it Helps Relieve Internal and External Stress
Gratitude is highly undervalued in today’s world. We often get bombarded with information at such a rapid rate that we forget what it’s like to be presently grateful.
But why is it even important to be grateful? And why and how would it relieve any stress that you may be going through?
Simply put, gratitude allows you to enter a state of acceptance and appreciation. You’re now able to look internally and externally with contentment in what you find. You release judgement of yourself and the things outside of yourself leaving you with more room to be presently in a loving frequency.
But how does this help with stress?
One of the main reasons stress is involved in your day to day life is because of a lack of perspective. Yes, you may be dealing with some tough times. You may be going through a heck of a struggle, but once you take a second to slow down and be grateful for everything that you have going on within and without, you can then see that this is all a part of the journey. Allowing you to relieve some of that stress that you may be feeling!
You will have more energy to focus on the things that you do have instead of all of the things that you may not! This will allow you to align yourself with more loving vibrations and with things that bring more gratitude and love into your life!
Let go to the magic of gratitude because once you do, you will notice an uplift in mood and energy which in turn helps you to keep your momentum going in whatever it is that you want to do!
Remember this must be practiced, so take the time out of your day to pause and ask:
What could I presently be grateful for?
