Introduction:

Body:

Philosopher David Hume wrote, ‘Of all crimes that human creatures are capable of committing, the most horrid and unnatural is ingratitude.’

Gratitude is ‘the feeling of being thankful’. It is the recognition that one has obtained appositive outcome and recognising that there is an external source for this positive outcome.

Its importance: Studies reveal that expressing gratitude is linked to psychological well being — it increases happiness and satisfaction with life, and encourages the development of patience and humility.

At a societal level, it acts as glue, making people generous, kind and helpful. And where there is lack of appreciation for the good around you, a person tends to suffer from a sense of self-importance and becomes arrogant and, in effect, a poorer human being.

Suggest methods through which one can inculcate the value of Gratitude.

Conclusion:

Conclude with importance.
