When we better understand the composition of gratitude we can tap into and pinpoint strategies for harnessing its incredible benefits.

What the brain reveals about gratitude
Recent research has revealed that when people report grateful feelings, their brains showed activity in the frontal lobes of the brain where the two hemispheres meet. This is the area of the brain associated with understanding other people’s perspectives, empathy, and is connected to the systems in the body and brain that regulate emotion and support the process of stress relief. There is also evidence that indicates that the mental practice of gratitude may even be able to change and re-wire the brain. More information at https://greatergood.berkeley.ed
