While a greater sense of purpose will undoubtedly make your life meaningful and more fulfilling, you should always feel grateful for what you still have.
One of the leading causes of depression and anxiety is focusing too much on what we don’t have and not realizing what we already have.
Let’s talk about your “eye” for a second, will you ever exchange your eye for a million-dollar or heck even a billion-dollar, be true to yourself, the answer will be an absolute no. Listen duh, you already have something more valuable than a billion-dollar.
If you won’t be grateful and happy about having something equivalent to a billion-dollar every day, what made you think that making money and having materialistic things will make you happier.
To overcome depression and anxiety naturally, it is one of the crucial practices you should take daily in life. I don’t mean you should not improve yourself by focusing on the future, but while you strive towards the future goal, be grateful and happy about what you have.
The way I practice gratitude is, after doing meditation in the morning, I spend around 5 minutes daily to be grateful for everything I have in life. This little time can make you significantly realize about all the essential things you have.
