Gratitude can play a very unique role in our lives, particularly our well-being. Gratitude is when you feel thankful for what you have in your life. Whether that is people, places you are, the job you have, tangible things, or small intangible things. Practicing gratitude on a regular basis can lead to lower levels of stress and depression and lead to higher levels of social support. This is especially during a life transitional period.
Being grateful over a long period of time can have the most beneficial effects on your well-being and have the best results of reducing levels of stress and depression. It can also have many other health benefits such as reducing anger, improving sleep, improving relationships and increasing mental strength.
