The crafting of a measure for gratitude revealed a few keys insights. Frequency is the most commonly considered aspect of gratitude with intensity a close second. The remaining aspects are density, the number of people you thank for any given blessing, and span, the width of your life that you feel grateful. Taking all four aspects together, you suddenly have a sophisticated structure to measure the quality and nature of gratitude.
What happens when you consider your own gratitude habit from each of the four aspects?
- How often do you feel grateful?
- How intensity do you feel grateful?
- In how many areas of your life do you feel substantial gratitude throughout your day?
- How many people in your life do you feel grateful for throughout your day?
Now combine any of the two for additional insights.
