Appreciation vs. Gratitude

Uncategorized Nov 02, 2020

The, feeling that pre-election frenetic energy?


One thing we like to do to help stay grounded through any stressful or anxious event is to practice appreciation.

We talked about this at length on our group coaching call last week.

Appreciation, not gratitude. 

With gratitude, the word and concept has become convoluted for many of us.

It may feel like or chore or one more thing we have to do.

When we start writing or saying out loud, "I'm grateful for...", it can bring up a hint of shame or guilt, as if you are not worthy of the very thing for which you're about to claim gratitude.

On the other hand, practicing appreciation can bring you more easily into total joy, love and alignment.

When you appreciate someone or something with the pure intention of celebration and love without feeling unworthy and without expecting anything in return, it's a completely different process and outcome.

Try stating a few "I appreciate" statements today - either verbally out loud or written - and notice if you can feel a subtle shift in how your body responds.
