Epiosde 19: Utilizing Gratitude in a Time of Fear and Anxiousness
Show Notes

In this podcast, we will be discussing how gratitude can be utilized as a tool during times of fear and worry. Our guest today is Katie Kershner, a Health coach focused on supporting individuals during their busy season of life. This is our second conversation around Gratitude and its impact in our day today lives. Katie and I talk abou personal experiences around how having a daily Gratitude practice allowed us to show up differently in our life and utilize the tools practiced to have a different perspective of intense situations. 

The sound was a bit funky from my end, but the conversation felt like it needed to be shared. So hoping that you can take what you need from it and the sound quality doesnt take away from your experience. 

Key takeaways:

  1. What is gratitude? Gratitude is a mindset, a way of seeing the world around you with appreciation and thankfulness. It's not just about feeling good when things go well, but also being able to find the good in difficult situations.
  2. Gratitude and fear are incompatible: When we focus on what we're grateful for, it's hard to feel afraid. Gratitude shifts our attention away from what we don't have and toward what we do have.
  3. Cultivating gratitude: Gratitude is a skill that can be practiced and developed over time. 
  4. Gratitude and the brain: Practicing gratitude can rewire our brains to focus on the positive and decrease negative thoughts and emotions.
  5. Gratitude in difficult times: It's important to remember that gratitude doesn't mean ignoring or minimizing difficult emotions. Instead, it's about finding the good in the midst of challenging situations.

Conclusion:
As is the basis of all that we love to talk about at The Motion of Gratitude, Gratitude is a powerful tool that can help us navigate through times of fear and worry. By cultivating a mindset of gratitude and practicing it regularly, we can experience greater happiness, stronger relationships, and improved overall well-being.
