What Is Gratitude? Gratitude is one of many positive emotions. It's about focusing on what's good in our lives and being thankful for the things we have. Gratitude is about pausing to notice and appreciate the things that we often take for granted, like having a place to live, food, clean water, friends, family, even computer access. It's taking a moment to reflect on how fortunate we are when something good happens — whether it's a small thing or a big thing. We can use lots of words to describe feelings of gratitude: We might say we feel thankful, lucky, fortunate, humbled, or blessed. Why Gratitude Matters? Gratitude doesn't just feel good. Making a habit of practising gratitude can also be good for us. Like other positive emotions, feeling grateful on a regular basis can have a big positive effect on our lives.
