The Science Behind Gratitude (and How It Can Change Your Life) By Derrick Carpenter, MAPP. The benefits of practicing gratitude are nearly endless. People who regularly practice gratitude by taking time to notice and reflect upon the things they’re thankful for experience more positive emotions, feel more alive, sleep better, express more compassion and kindness, and even have.

One of such studies looked at how gratitude works on the level of the brain and found that gratitude is not a basic emotion of just getting a reward. How the New Science of Gratitude Can Make You Happier, shows that simply keeping a gratitude journal—regularly writing brief reflections on moments for which we’re thankful—can significantly increase well-being and life satisfaction.

Studies and research have been conducted to understand how gratitude can change your life.

When one can see the good in comparison to the bad, it can help to offer an “out” from being stuck in a mindset, or situation.

It can even decrease the amount of dwelling on the negative and help to concrete positive thinking. This indicates that simply expressing gratitude may have lasting effects on the brain.

  • So true! I would like to share with all of you this short but most beautiful video: “GRATITUDE” by Louie Schwartzberg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4115qFsdWKQ

  • I appreciate the valuable content Gratitude shouldn’t be overlooked! I discuss gratitude in the last video on my channel as well, in a parenting context. I truly hope videos like ours inspire other people out there to contemplate gratitude & then live it. Thanks again.

  • I am grateful i am 993rd visitor who clicked thump up. Ofcourse it would be nice to be the 1000. But 993 is also great! Thank you!:D

  • Love this video. This is exactly why our charity built the ShareTree App to create this as a routine for every person and team culture.
    https://youtu.be/5Zh03qgo3xA

  • I am thankful that my family is able to have food available to me during the quarantine. I think I took being able to ask questions face to face with my teachers.

  • I am thankful that I’m not alone and I got my mom to help with this “stay at home” period. I definitely took for granted the ability to just go out with friends and now I wish I could. (Quarantine Assignment)

  • Good presentation… “Be thou happy and well-pleased and arise to offer thanks to God, in order that thanksgiving may conduce to the increase of bounty.” Abdul-Baha, Baha’i Faith

  • As a mental health professional, I recommend this important message for all my clients. Practicing gratitude and implementing the practice into our daily lives starts with even the smallest actions; being thankful for the morning coffee, kindly greeting a stranger with hello, and paying attention to how good it feels to experience the return of a simple smile.

  • I care about Lavendaire, I want her to be seen in the best way.

    I want to imagine these words and intentions are supercharged with rejuvenation reiki ‘juice’ that exfoliates relushifies and detoxifies the insides chic-ly

    I am grateful that she can attain benefits from reiki just coming from someone who was led to feelings of gratitude by Lavendaire. At least this way, I see her happy face smiling back gratefully as she feels the effects of a reiki healing.

  • Really love this I’ve recently really put this into practice more purposefully and it does make a huge difference. You feel lighter.

  • 1. I am grateful for my cousin who I live with and hang out with everyday. She is loving, kind and gentle, and we’re best friends! I enjoy her crafty, artistic spirit. She’s also been inspiring me to decorate my room as an artistic expression. Her room is beautiful.

    2. I am grateful to have many nice things, many of which I don’t even use. When I moved here my uncle was kind enough to bring a truck so I could load all my stuff and bring it with me. I wasn’t expecting that, and I was ready to give up my stuff. I am grateful to have a family that honors my need for my belongings.

    3. I am grateful to have healthy food to eat. When I got here, I signed up for food stamps and I was accepted instantly! I’m grateful for a steady source of food income, that I can use to nourish my body.

    4. I am grateful for a healthy body, and that I can move around without any pains or ailments.

    5. Lastly, I am grateful for the animals that surround me, showing me love and affection unconditionally. I love them!

  • great presentation! Its really exciting to see these ideas going mainstream and being scientifically proven.. I began years ago,when I woke up depressed, I would play the “what am I thankful for game”. Honestly now, depression is not an issue for me at all. Seeing these tips for habit building is exciting!

  • Thank you man, the impact that you are having on my life and so many people’s lives, much of which you may not see directly, is so vast and abundant and will continue to ripple through humanity in ways you can’t imagine. Returning the love and gratitude right back at ya!

  • Life can be relentlessly negative. It’s amazing to be able to just tune in to your podcast and listen to yourself and other such positive people cos this podcast is RELENTLESS in its positive energy, its uplifting force. Thank you so much for shining your light and being a stage for others to shine and share their light. Much love from the UK

  • I am grateful for

    1.Youtube platform in order for me to practice law of attraction on the daily, and for food recipes scary stories, and so much content I can listen to just at the tip of my fingers

    2. I am grateful for my job, I am able to make a big difference in so many lives effectively, and have met so many resources and people who can give me great career advice

    5. Lastly I am grateful that this universe is made of pure LOVE. We all come from love, so therefore I am grateful my soulmate is out there 😉

  • I am I’m really really trying to embrace this whole gratitude mindset and the journal writing process. It sounds so hokey pokey to me but so many people that I listen to and admire are saying the same thing. That I really wanna understand but it’s so hard because I lived so long with that is old school mindset but I want so much more out of life and I’m just trying to find the way and I will not listen to well you’re 49 and it’s too late I have a purpose and I Want so badly to live my best life even though I’ve wasted 29 years living in the mindset of I can’t I’m just trying to change and it’s all is so doggone hard to change your whole direction particularly at the age of 49 but I have to go for this man

  • I m gratitude, about myself, my dog, the sun, the moon, the family members that supported me on difficult times:) I appreciate my strengths and weaknesses, for having food, for having water, for have the opportunity to smell the roses and flowers in general:D

  • Thank you. After my parents died I found out my brother Jimmy who died in January wasn’t even blood related. And the brother I thought was my brother was my half brother. When Jimmy found out he said “You’ll always be my little sister.” I miss him so much.

  • Thanks for sharing that story with your brother. My Dad is fighting cancer. On a different note, have you read any books talking about self hypnosis?

  • Great content. If you work on your instagram you’ll get a million subscribers in a blink. Your summaries work great as a guidance to which book I want to read next. Thanks!

  • The thing is, I earn my food. I earn my rent. I earn my shelter. Who am I thanking? Gratitude to me is a really lazy way to never want more from life. Just be grateful for everything and anything. Heck, no one is giving me anything. I work for every thing I have, all on my own. I don’t have a partner, or a family, or close friends. I have me. Who am I thanking? Myself? Thank you me for earning the wages by busting your ass?

    Just be grateful. You don’t need to strive for greatness. Just settle. Be grateful and settle.

  • Such a simple practice and yet so profoundly effective. Today I’m taking this video to class to bring more awareness to the power of gratitude. Thanks WellCast: )

  • I am going to try this, Can we be grateful for the things we can do. Both that we are allowed to do and have the ability to do. It seems kinda bad. I am grateful I could go to school. When I think about that poor little girl shot in the head for wanting to go to school, I will just be grateful for Unicorns and cotton candy.

  • I am grateful for your post, and for YouTube, and for Internet so I could find and listen to this, to be inspired, and to be able to share with others!:)

  • Also….. ¿What’s wrong with hugging trees? They give us oxygen right? We should give them a hug in return!….. �� All jokes aside, I’m thankful for this video.
    ����

  • Hey wellcast thank you for the postive content you share. You inspire me to continue growing and learning. Your advice is gentle and concise thank you!

  • I am grateful for God, who sustains the spirits of my immediate family. I am grateful, so grateful to God, the creator of the universe, for blessing my family with many gifts and spiritual treats, and for surrounding us with goodly people and opportunities. I am thankful to God because I am here Now and my body is healthy, my mind is free, and my spirit is at peace. The value of these qualities is priceless. I am grateful to God and I am grateful that I have a Good aura/halo, it is very fashionable, very in season, and moral, encouraging good deeds and environmentalism. I am grateful for the forest of my hair, that my face lives nestled deep within, I am grateful for my small but artistic breasts, that shade the top of my belly when the light is shining from directly above. I am grateful for the small of my back, and for the arc of my legs and feet, thank you God, for all the inner organs of my body, and thank you because they are genius and I can never understand them but always know their nature is holy. Thank you.

    I am grateful for the vocal chords in my throat, I am appreciative because they are there. I ask them, at the behest of God to continue to emit high pitch voices, ones matching the tune of my true soul, and they oblidge.

    God, this is amazing, and thank you for the name God, because it’s easy to say and full of benefits. God, thank you! Thank you! THANKS A LOT!

    AND THANKS FOR JUDAISM

  • I am grateful that I was never the subject to genetic experimentation, I am grateful that I live among wild growing plants that generate an auric field that neutralizes potentially harmful waves coming through the air from electronics, pollution, etc, and emit themselves beneficial natural auric vibrations that are condusive to life, insight, and healthy emotional energies. I am grateful for the natural state of things, and I appreciate the simplicity of the world. I am grateful that it is true that the remedy and prevention to all ailment comes in raw form from nature itself in the form of herbs. Anyone who has made herbal medicine compendiums, in any land, and in any language, I am grateful for them. I am grateful for the wise friends who recommend to us herbs instead of over the counter drugs. I am grateful for the medicine perspective that strives to keep the average person informed of remedies from nature (and thus compelled to protect and honor the wildlife around him/her), rather than encouraging visits to doctors offices, etc, except in very extreme cases. I am grateful for all the herbal wisdom I have learned in my life. Thank you. I feel the information has definitely helped to preserve my inner essence and health in many occasions, and even changed my life.I am therefore thankful for the energy that sustains all life on the plant and the sacred balance of this universe.

    I am grateful for Minor treat and Fugazi, rites of spring, the bad brains for giving a real punk scene to Washington dc. I am grateful for anyone who helps support cultures of local punk shows nonconformist and original noncommercial bands… extra points for organism and animal rights/buddha

  • I am grateful for the Bookstores, however, I would also be more grateful for another truly captivating fantasy book series that completely draws me in, in the midst of today’s modern world. I am grateful for books moreso that movies, it is true.

  • Thank you, I am grateful that I just meditated silently without music or words/thoughts,for 10-15 minutes while seated cross-legged with a straight back, on the bare earth (wildgrowing grass).

  • I’m greatful for my mistakes and challenges, for being the chosen 1, having food and supplies, having all my limbs, and God for blessing me each and everyday

  • I am Class of 2020 and lately it’s been really really REALLY hard for me to be grateful for anything right now. I looked into the LOA because I do have a lot but I just feel so unmotivated and negative. I am really trying my best to pick myself back up and look into all of the positives I have.
    I am grateful for…
    1.) my friends:) they plan adventures and we help each other get our mind off of all the negatives.
    2.) this might be cliche but my phone and internet. I am grateful for the ability to see that I am not alone and that I have access to the world with just a few clicks
    3.) A roof over my head. Recently I went to the city and my friends and I visited a Mexican restaurant that we have never been to but it was the only close thing that was open. We walked there but I just saw so many homeless people, families that were trying to make a living by selling things on the streets and people constantly asking us for money and soliciting. This honestly just broke my heart. I wanted to pull out my wallet and hand some but there was just too many around my friends and I that I wanted to ensure our safety first.
    4.) Nature. Whenever I feel too cluttered and I need some air, I can always count on Earth to have fresh air to calm me down. It’s crazy what a simple walk in the woods or by the shore can do. Thank you Earth.
    5.) My religion and the Universe. My religion helps me to always know that I can count on someone. That that one person will always be there for me, even in my darkest times. He puts things in my life for a reason. The Universe and my religion help me to believe that there always is light at the end of a tunnel and that it will always be there for me. And when I am ready, I will reach it.

    4.Sticking to a skincare routine and seeing positive changing on my skin
    5.To be able to use my 5 senses to the maximum and take advantage of them always

  • The word of God supports this concept. It literally tells us to think of beautiful things:

    “Whatever they do prospers.” The apostle Paul said, “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — think about such things and the God of peace will be with you” (Philippians 4:8)

    Verses supporting gratitude:

    The apostle Paul exhorts us in Scripture to to give thanks for all things, in all circumstances (Eph 5:20; 1 Thess 5:18), even in suffering (Rom 5:3-5 ; James 1:1-4),and to do everything in the name of Jesus out of a spirit of gratitude (Col 3:17). On the other hand, thanklessness marks godless and wicked men who suppress the truth about God (Rom 1:18-21).

    Thank you for the video, it’s wonderful you’re seeking to learn and spread good things ❤️ I hope you seek to know who exactly created you, you were specifically created, not evolved by accident friend.

  • I’m grateful for my pets, having a garden during the tough situation right now, my health, My books like Heidi by Johanna Spyri and my suncream ��

  • 1. Grateful for the food and water I had today.
    2. Grateful for my parents are with me
    3. Grateful for the having relatives and frds that care about me
    4. Grateful that I have a job
    5. Grateful that I can walk and smile and see

  • I am grateful for
    1. Being able to communicate with others online as when I feel isolated it allows me to come up with different perspectives to my own that I may have not been able to if I was in isolation by myself without it.
    2. The fact that I am-able to walk and speak in languages. Life would be extremely difficult for me if I could not communicate with my mouth and share the clutter in my head. I love walking too, it is freeing.
    3. Our consciousness allows us to become an ever changing being who can differentiate their vibrations from low to high in a second if your outlook on life changes it makes you appreciate life for what it is before you can’t.
    4. Simply having celebrities be a thing. If we did not have them, I do not think many people would’ve motivated to change into better people or somebody that had an impact on the future for the next generations. Good celebrities are impactful in this way.
    5. Emotions are extremely important to the human experience and learning about yourself and what you want to do. Without emotions, this would be less of a ride through experiences that make you excited, but sad, yet you’ll still go back to that high one day, it’d be more of a walk with a sitting neutral feeling that never leaves. This is why I am grateful for emotions, they can make the colour of life pop out if you couldn’t see it before.

  • 5 things I’m grateful for:
    1. My cat. I honestly love my cat so much. There was a time when he was a few months old, he was playing around on front of me in my room. It was just me and him in my room. I started crying because during that time my depression was at peak that day. My heart was in so much pain all i could do was cry. My cat who jumping around playing on my bed..where i was sitting too…stopped what he was doing and looked straight at me. He quickly came to me and started rubbing his face on my eyes and sat with me till i stopped crying. He is now 3 years old and i still cant forget that day. I love him so much…if i ever lost him..i don’t know what I’ll do to be honest. Im so glad to have him in my life.
    2. My parents. They literally went through heck of a lot because of me and my sibilings..yet..they stayed so strong and loving and caring. I could go on. But these words are not strong enough to describe how i feel about my parents. I really do respect those amazing parents out there who stay strong and loving even when their children do some much that hurt them. I believe being a parent is one of the hardest thing to do. Im not a parent..so i dont know how it feels…but im sure being a parent is both the most hardest energy draining but the most worthit beautiful thing to do. I respect you a lot! I am grateful for having both my parents.
    3. Being able to go and study for what i yern for. I know its going to be a long road to becoming what i want but many people out there cant afford a day in school. I really do hope that one day they’ll get what they yern for.
    4. Being able to sleep at night. In a home that has shelter. On a clean comfy bed. I really am grateful that i have this.
    5. My loved ones are still here and me. Its true. Family always comes first. Without my family…i dont even know…

    It was hard for me to think about these 5. For roughly 3 years i haven’t had a single friend that i felt comfortable with and can be myself and someone who accepted me. Only recently i noticed that i dont need to have friends, at least i have my family. But sometimes i do feel down…because i miss my first ever friend and bestfriend in year 6. Her name was Kristen. Even though i only knew her for not a full year but nearly a year, ive never felt the same with anyone else like i did with her. I was always happy to see her. Its been a very long time..im now 20. Nearly 10 years. I hope she reads this. Maybe. Hopefully.

  • Sorry, but why do we need scientific proof on everything? Why can’t people just practice gratitude and realize ** for themselves ** that they become happier!

  • I’m grateful for…

    1)… that I’ve found your channel Aileen. It has changed my life!��

    2)… the commitment I’ve done to really do your exercises and take small steps towards my own dream life.

    3)… that I’ve been able to stand so much imperfection today. It’s sometimes really hard for me, but I’m getting better!��

    4)… that I went and boiled my menstrual cup, althrough my whole family was at home. At first I thougt I wouldn’t be able to do it, but I was wrong. Anyone doesn’t have to try to hide their period. We all know it’s silly to try to keep them a secret, but it’s still hard to do differently. But it doesn’t mean you couldn’t do differently.

    5)… this mouse emoji. I love it so much and use it much.

    4) I am humbled by the fact that I’ve got food, shelter and the basics to get my day going smoothly
