How can we find joy when things feel chaotic?
When we’re grateful, we can let go of our expectations. That can lead to greater happiness and life satisfaction, no matter how uncertain the present is—or the future may be.5
“Gratitude lets you appreciate what truly matters in the moment. That can go a long way toward improving your perspective, self-esteem, and overall sense of happiness.”
When Tomorrow’s Uncertain, Have Gratitude for Today
It’s impossible to predict the future. Still, many of us try—even during uncertain times—and we’re disappointed when our predictions don’t pan out.12
That can make life less enjoyable and more stressful than it has to be. It can also blind us to the value of what we already have.1
Gratitude can counteract that.
It can help us let go of negative emotions so we can enjoy what we have now.13
In unpredictable times, gratitude can do much more. It can empower us to handle stress better and recover from adversity faster.13
In the big picture, practicing gratitude lets you appreciate what truly matters in the moment. That can go a long way toward improving your perspective, self-esteem, and overall sense of happiness. It can also enhance and enrich your life.14
