National Gratitude Month: How To Live A Grateful Life (+ Free Wallpaper Download)

What’s your earliest memory with gratitude?

It might’ve been when you were in grade school and you noticed everyone was talking about thankfulness but only next to the topic of Thanksgiving. Alternatively, it might have been living in a household that practiced gratitude daily; not just confined in one month.

Whatever the path that brought you to this point in your life, gratitude should be constant.

November is National Gratitude Month but it’s a dedicated month to remind you why gratitude could be a consistent practice and experience in your emotional and mental wellness.

Why Gratitude Is Important

It’s scientifically proven that gratitude has stabilizing benefits. For example, Positive Psychology shared, “Researcher Chih-Che Lin (2017) found that even when controlling for personality, a high level of gratitude has a strong positive impact on psychological well-being, self-esteem, and depression. Basically, this means that we can reap the best benefits of gratitude by embodying gratitude and truly living a life of gratitude, a state that we can get to through regular practice and commitment.”

Gratitude doesn’t lean in on toxic positivity.

It’s a conscious decision to put more focus on gratitude making it more difficult to fall into negative thoughts and focusing on daily stressors. Gratitude aids in your cortisol levels, improving your stress management, which then strengthens your emotional resilience. Standard everyday stressors like running late for something or accidentally breaking something in the kitchen will roll off your back with more ease. The key? Consistency.

You’ll be able to control how you react and how you let things impact your day.

Let’s start National Gratitude Month with a new affirmation.

Repeat it 3x a day:

The more grateful I am, the more beauty I see.

The more grateful I am, the more beauty I see.

The more grateful I am, the more beauty I see.
