Gratitude Therapy – Hope Rehab

The Power of Gratitude Therapy at Hope Rehab Center Thailand

Gratitude is a positive emotion, modern medical research shows it’s the most direct route to restoring happiness and balance in our lives.

The practice of gratitude is the antidotes to feelings of not having enough or not being enough

According to a study (Watkins et al. 2003) after prompting participants to think about things they’re grateful for, they demonstrated multiple advantages, more patience, and were able to keep their impulses in check. Most of us favor short-term gratification over long-term rewards like credit-card debt or substance abuse. Using willpower to suppress our desires is a stressful way to curb this need for instant gratification.
