What is gratitude?
‘gifts outweighing exchange’
Gratitude is a selfless act.
“A gift that is freely given”
The beautiful cycle of gratitude:
Gratitude causes happiness, while at the same time, that feeling of happiness fosters gratitude.
Gratitude can be contagious.
Gratitude is different than ‘thank you’
gratitude is not just an action: it is also a positive emotion
it happens when you are overwhelmed by something or somebody.
There is no feeling of indebtedness, guilt
being overwhelmed with gratitude is a very beautiful way to be receptive.
How can we practise gratitude?
Appreciate, acknowledge, action
Focus on quality instead of quantity
How does gratitude help?
Deeper connection with self, others and Universe
