Practices like expressions of gratitude offer a number of benefits – including giving us power to break habituations and allowing our brain to release a feel-good surge of neurotransmitters, such as dopamine and nerepinephrine.
So what is gratitude?
Cicero, in Roman culture, named gratitude the “mother” of all human feelings.
In woo-woo talk, it’s that tingly, fuzzy, feel-good sensation inside our minds, and maybe even hearts. It’s validation. It’s instant happiness.
And it is. When we express gratitude, it acts as a catalyst for our brain to release dopamine and serotonin – neurotransmitters responsible for happiness.
