Importance of practicing gratitude

"The root of joy is gratefulness." - David Steindl-Rast

Dear Vibrant Young Mind,

Our minds can imagine all worst-case scenarios, making it difficult to appreciate how blessed we are. We constantly despise ourselves and complain about things we lack in our life. I wish I had a large home or a dream car. Why am I not as successful as them, and so forth. We rarely take the time to appreciate and be grateful for all we have right now. But remember that it's always important to take time to pause and express gratitude for the things and people in our lives. It's critical to reflect on our accomplishments and growth so far. Gratitude is important not just for peace but also for overall well-being.

What is gratitude?

Many of you may believe that gratitude is about feeling grateful for the good things in life.

However, it is difficult to "feel grateful" in reality. We live in unprecedented times, and it is difficult to keep our emotions under control, given how quickly things change. We can't be happy all of the time.

Being grateful is what gratitude is all about. It helps you see the world through a different lens, allowing you to cope with temporary changes. When
