Do I exercise gratitude?

Each week, Tuesday Trio serves up three tips to evoke reflection and improve our mental health and wellbeing.

This week, we’re asking, “Do I exercise gratitude?”

  • Do I know how important gratitude is to my mental health and wellbeing?
  • Do I realise that by exercising gratitude, I am closest to being present and living in the moment?
  • How often do I exercise gratitude?

Over the past decade, studies have revealed that people who consciously exercise gratitude tend to be happier and less depressed. Research shows that by counting our blessings, we can reduce our stress and improve our mental and physical health. As always, we at I Am Here would love for you to join us in the conversation.


What are we watching this week?

This week we are watching an esteemed professor of neuroscience Dr. Beau Lotto explain how important gratitude is to our mental health and wellbeing. He calls gratitude the “mother of all feelings” and says that by exercising gratitude, we are more resilient to the setbacks in life. We are better equipped to overcome reflex actions that might take us in the wrong direction in terms of panic attacks, stress, or negativity. He says gratitude is key to our personal learning and development.

At I Am Here, we find the science behind gratitude fascinating. Dr. Lotto talks us through how the brain responds to gratitude and then translates it into how that impacts our mood, decisions, and progress. He explains to us that by being grateful, we are serving our mental health and wellbeing.

What are we reading this week?

This week, we are reading a reflection taken from #soulpancake. It references our preconceptions about Mondays, but we believe it could relate to any day of the week. It speaks for itself, but at I Am Here, we think everyone could write a version of this within their own contexts.
