Every time we consider something we are grateful for, we engage our prefrontal cortex ? . This is the part of our brain that we know as us??♀️??♂️. It’s the part of our brain that makes decisions based on weighing ⚖ up the pro’s and con’s of a situation, rather than jumping ?♀️ right in there and doing something irrational?.
The more we exercise our prefrontal cortex? through considering moments we are grateful for?, the more we naturally use our prefrontal cortex ?when working through our day to day lives?.
Every 31st December ? I like to consider at least one good moment? from each month that I was pleased with?, or enjoyed?. My year of highlights or memorable moments?.
Every day, I like to spend some time in the evening ? thinking ? about three good moments from that day too?️. The more you do it, the easier it gets ?. Even on the days that don’t always feel so great!
Practising gratitude in this way, helps us to gain back control of a situation when it feels like we have lost all control. It also helps us to cope better with situations that are out of our control. ?
