Everyone have their own reasons which lead them to stress,mental trauma and in some case even depression. The only way to stay healthy from these all dilemma’s is to practice gratitude. Through gratitude we can increase our productivity too.

Knowing that the life has a choice itself gives you a positive vibes. Many studies have shown that having choice influences your satisfaction in life.
Very worst can happen to anyone, but knowing you have the choice to look good in spite of that is crucial for helping you to maintain your ability to manage yourself well in these situations.

The research concludes and confirms that gratitude enhances happiness and reduces depression.
5 Gratitude Improves Self Esteem
Self Esteem, the most important component to optimal performance. Studies have confirmed that gratitude reduces social comparison. Grateful people always appreciate the accomplishments of others.Athletes too practice gratitude to improve self esteem.
We all have ability and skill to develop gratitude. Rather then complaining about the things you don’t have,try to celebrate and cherish for the things you have. These will create positive atmosphere around you.
These will attract the others towards you. Developing an ‘attitude of gratitude’ is most simplest ways to improve satisfaction in life.
Start these practice and keep a journal. At the end of a day take a moment and write 3 good things that happened to you in a day. You can also add your Experience that you cultivated. There are many application available in play-store and windows market where you can download them and can keep record of your gratitude practice.
If I share my journey of cultivating gratitude it would go like these-
In the very beginning it was difficult for me to see good things in others as we all are developed in an atmosphere where we only see negative things in an individual. It was difficult for me to write down even three good things in a day.
My family members used to call me selfish(which i admit it). My sisters used to do a lot-off things for me but i never appreciated them(As i thought there is no need to get formal or say thank you to family members because they are ‘FAMILY’ as it was their duty to help me but i was wrong.What a shame!!).
Now I Appreciate everyone who helps me. I praise my mother every time she cooks delicious food for us. Now its easy for me to follow gratitude attitude. I’m Obliged that i have many people in my life who helps me and guides me at every moment.
Now our desire to create the Happiness becomes more meaningful,comfortable lives for everyone and healthy and positive atmosphere can be achieved by being grateful of all the small things in our life going on.
Hope these will help you to achieve the kindness you always desired!!!
