Feeling Good

Filed under: John Morgan's Blog — John Morgan @ 7:55 am

I’ve written and read enough about gratefulness that I wasn’t sure there was anything new to say, until this morning.

As we approach Thanksgiving in the U.S., we will express our thanks and gratitude in our traditional way. It got me to wondering about an incentive to do it with regularity past this one day.

We’ve heard all the benefits of being grateful, but I think one of them gets overlooked. It makes us feel good.

How many other ways are we attempting to feel good that have side effects? The list is long and getting longer.

Expressing gratitude makes us feel good every time and there aren’t any heebie-jeebies or hangovers attached.

If for no other reason, entertain gratitude because it makes you feel good. You can be selfish about it without any guilt.

The more gratitude you express, the better you feel.

Don’t be grateful for any esoteric reason, do it because it makes you feel good. “Be Selfish, Be Grateful” may not show up on a bumper sticker, but maybe it should, because it makes you feel good.

Entertain making gratitude a daily ritual. It can take less than a minute and the feel good results are instantly measurable.

Please pretend that I’m making this up and don’t take my word for it. Do this experiment: Quickly assess your current mental state, then bring to mind the things you are grateful for (little things, middle things and Mama & Papa Bear things). Do it for a minute or two. Then when you’re done, assess your mental state again. You will be able to directly measure how much better you feel.

If you need to feel good, interrupt the thing you normally do that has downside effects and practice being grateful. The result is this: You arrive at the same place without falling on your face.

 

All the best,

John
