Did you know gratitude as a ‘natural antidepressant’? The effects of gratitude, when practiced daily can be almost the same as medications.
It produces a feeling of long-lasting happiness and contentment, the physiological basis of which lies at the neurotransmitter level. When we express gratitude and receive the same, our brain releases dopamine and serotonin, the two crucial neurotransmitters responsible for our emotions, and they make us feel ‘good’. They enhance our mood immediately, making us feel happy from the inside. By consciously practicing gratitude everyday, we can help these neural pathways to strengthen themselves and ultimately create a permanent grateful and positive nature within ourselves.
“God gave you a gift of 86400 seconds today. Have you used one to say thank you?” – William Arthur Ward
