The art of gratitude
Feeling awe and gratitude in your life can have immense benefits on your overall mental health, physical health, and emotional wellbeing. Experiencing these two emotions can help to reduce stress, encourage creativity and bring more joy into your life.
Awe is a feeling of overwhelming wonder and admiration. It’s a feeling that comes over you when the beauty of nature and the grandeur of the universe comes into perspective. It can be found by looking up at the night sky, pausing to take in a stunning sunset, or listening to your favorite musician perform.
Gratitude, on the other hand, is the appreciation of what you have in your life. Things like family, friends, and experiences that bring joy and meaning to your life. Gratitude promotes a positive and optimistic outlook on life by helping us appreciate the good things we have and take notice of the wonderful world around us.
So, how do you find these feelings of awe and gratitude on a daily basis? Start by making an effort to take a few moments each day to pause and appreciate your surroundings. Stop to listen to the birds or take a look at the clouds drifting across the sky. Take time to reflect on all the people and things that you have in your life that you appreciate and are grateful for. Finally, make a conscious effort to find beauty and wonder in your everyday.
