Learn to say thank you. A great reminder of the importance of practicing gratitude daily in your life from the people around you.

“Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues but the parent of all others.” – Marcus Tullius Cicero

Saying Thank You: A Gratitude Meditation

The human race has accomplished an incredible number of miraculous feats over the course of the past several thousand years. Where other animals are predominantly confined to their existing circumstances — few creatures are able to do more than affect a very small amount of change on whatever environment they find themselves in — we humans are enormously skilled when it comes to altering our current state of being.

For generations upon generations, we’ve successively identified one problem after another that needs fixing. If there’s something about our environment that we’re not satisfied with, we change it. It’s as simple as that. We want our lives to be more exciting, more pleasurable, and more stimulating. As a result, technological innovation over the past few thousands of years (or, for that matter, simply the past few decades) has been enormous.

Being Mindful and Grateful

While we’re incredibly good at fixing problems, though, we’re not so great at acknowledging what’s already wonderful about our situation. Mindfulness doesn’t seem to come naturally for many of us. As humans, we seem to have a knack for always pointing to what’s wrong about a situation. We find things to be dissatisfied about, and then we seek to change or fix them. Rarely, though, do we simply sit back and acknowledge everything that’s already perfect about the world.

The more time we spend attempting to point out the world’s faults, the more faults we’ll continue to find. Humans have never experienced such a great amount of material wealth and security on a whole. And yet, in spite of this, people are more anxious, worried, and depressed than ever.

Learn how to say thank you — learning to practice having an attitude of gratitude — is a remedy for this situation. In this mindfulness video, you’ll learn how to begin to incorporate gratitude into your daily life.
