Dr Robert Emmons, the world's leading scientific expert on gratitude:

" Research on emotion shows that positive emotions wear off quickly. Our emotional systems like newness. They like novelty. They like change. We adapt to positive life circumstances so that before too long, the new car, the new spouse, the new house—they don’t feel so new and exciting anymore.

But gratitude makes us appreciate the value of something, and when we appreciate the value of something, we extract more benefits from it; we’re less likely to take it for granted.

In effect, I think gratitude allows us to participate more in life. We notice the positives more, and that magnifies the pleasures you get from life. Instead of adapting to goodness, we celebrate goodness. We spend so much time watching things—movies, computer screens, sports—but with gratitude we become greater participants in our lives as opposed to spectators." 


Why Gratitude?

Gratitude enables us to respond proactively to a situation.

Often we just respond reactively to a situation. Letting the chimp part of our brain keep us in survival mode. Looking for evidence to support the negatives. Your brain is hardwired to do this to protect your from threats.

But the over stimulated world leaves us little time to decompress. So the chimp part of our brain just plays negative loops in your head on repeat.

And on top of this we aim for perfection. For something that doesn't exist and we will never reach. Wow, we love to set up  giant, man eating hurdles for ourselves, don’t we?

Why is gratitude the answer? Because it empowers to reframe quickly. To zoom out in the camera of your mind. See the bigger picture. Move the weather front in our head toward a warmer, sunnier place with bluer skies.

The neuroscience is unequivocal; Life is what we focus on. If you focus on the bad, it feels bad. If you focus on the good, it feels good.

And the best bit? People who feel more grateful are significantly more likely to bring other healthy habits into their lives. Gratitude. The power habit. Parent to all other useful habits.

How good is your brain at seeing the negatives?  It’s time to take responsibility.
