Does Gratitude Make You Happier? How Gratitude Changes Your Brain To Be More Positive

May 30, 20231 min read


A lot of people talk about gratitude as a cure all for any negative experience, and while yes gratitude can be a buffer to help you be more positive and to help you notice the good things you DO have, it is not a cure all. Gratitude will not fix horrible circumstances or systemic barriers, what it will do though is keep you from drowning in the negative.

Want to be happier and feel better? Gratitude may be the answer, but you may be doing it wrong. If you feel fake when you practice gratitude, I am going to teach you how to practice authentic gratitude, and how this practice is going to rewire your brain for positivity. Research shows that your brain is wired to pay attention to the negative and survival mode, and gratitude puts you into thrive mode.

You can rewire your brain for happiness, and gratitude is a skill you can practice that can help you do just that. In this episode I talk about the science behind gratitude and neuroplasticity, how gratitude creates neural networks that literally rewire your brain for positivity. I also talk about how to practice gratitude in a sustainable way.

I am going to walk you through some of the benefits of practicing gratitude, some of which include improving your sleep, lowering your stress response and cortisol response and improving your resilience. Practicing gratitude is going to work on more than your mental health, and when you start feeling the physical changes you are going to be really hooked.
