Expressing gratitude, and making a daily list of what you are grateful for can ground you and help you be present in the moment. It brings you back from living a future that is not here yet.
Chronically Anxious and Stressed Out
For years, I was chronically anxious, and I didn’t even know it. It took my doctor saying, “You scored really high on this anxiety questionnaire” for a lightbulb to go off and start me on a journey.
As I studied stress and anxiety and the effects they can have on both mental and physical health, I saw myself in the descriptions and symptoms.
Finding advice on a few simple starter steps I could take to take to take my life back was frustrating and discouraging.
Most of the professional advice I found was generic, with tips like “you need to lower your stress levels,” “you need more sleep,” or “you need to relax more.”
Yeah, helpful advice.
Cultivating an Attitude of Gratitude
Then I read about gratitude and the positive effects expressing gratitude can have on your brain and mental health.
This was a simple step I was looking for. In just a few minutes, I could write out a list of the good things in my life, even on the days my stress and anxiety spiked.
It wasn’t an overnight fix, but slowly I saw a shift, a daily gratitude practice was helping. Making this list has become one of the most important tools in my anxiety toolbox.
It can do the same for you!
