Everybody is familiar with the feeling that things are not as they should be. That you are not successful enough, your relationships not satisfying enough. That you don’t have the things you crave.
In this video we want to talk about one of the strongest predictors of how happy people are, how easily they make friends and how good they are at dealing with hardship. An antidote against dissatisfaction so to speak: Gratitude.

  • Ohai! For a change a few personal words. My name is Philipp and I started this channel almost seven years ago - you don’t know my voice but you have heard my words because I write most of our scripts. Oh boy. This was a hard video to make. Gratitude felt vaguely risky to do as a topic. It has this aura of cheap Instagram hashtag self help stuff. Some of you will hate this video deeply, and the thought of that made me pretty anxious writing it. Gratitude was not supposed to be a video topic originally. Just like the Nihilism and Loneliness videos, the script was based on personal struggles and part of the process of dealing with them. And so it felt right to make gratitude a video too. But Kurzgesagt is not a self help channel, so we'll keep this sort of content at roughly one or two per year. We hope they are helpful to some of you. If you care for my take on how to practice Gratitude, we made a Kurzgesagt Gratitude journal to combine the science with practical tips. shop.kurzgesagt.org/ Edit: PRE-ORDER is available again. Please note: You don’t need to buy this or anything else to practice gratitude - you only need a pen, a piece of paper and 5 minutes. Thank you for watching our videos and reading this comment. Being able to do Kurzgesagt means a lot. To me and the whole team. - Philipp

    • I have a very scientific approach to life and self-improvement, and it's over two year I keep a gratitude diary. So... spot on, Kurzgesagt and Philipp! But I understand your reticence about not looking like a self-help channel. I think that, as long as you cite your scientific resources (published papers, etc), at least in the description, you are on the safe side.

    • Thank you for all of these videos, I've always liked your science videos but damn! I needed this video just right now and even after watching the topic I was afraid but I think it will be pretty helpful. Thank you very much!

  • These gratitude and lonlieness videos felt exceptionally well made though, so i am gratefull for all the work you put into these. date 12018, 12019 nice :D A video suggestion: Wim Hof Breathing and the bodies ability to heal, cause lately there were a few nobel prizes in medicine won concerning research done around the wim hof method. This intersects with topics such as depression, happiness, auto immune sicknesses and inflammation.

  • moral of this video: it is your fault for not working hard enough at it you ungrateful pile of shite. i do love when these type of videos set out to give non-generic advice and then end up giving generic advice. "ey, dumbass, just cheer up and be more grateful and everything will be fine." damn dude. there is so much oversimplification in this video that it actually makes me feel gross inside. getting mobbed at work because people don't like that you're different? be more grateful! constantly stressed because you have to work at the absolute limit of your capacity in order to stay alive? be more grateful! your wife left you, killed your dog, took the kids and is trying her best to destroy your life? be more grateful! as we all know, being more grateful is the end all fix to, make you popular, socially accepted, successful and happy. so why haven't you fixed yourself yet you broken moron? @ HEY YOU GOT THAT PART RIGHT! come on kurz gesagt. i expected more from you than this general "fix your life with this one strange trick, evidence shows it MAY PERHAPS work" garbage.

  • It's amazing how we get these kinds of content for free. People badly need this, a therapy, since people usually wouldn't go into an actual session because either: too expensive or wouldn't want to waste their time on it. Honestly, I'm grateful that there are groups like Kurzgesagt who makes such contents for everyone.

  • I don't mean this in a rude way at all, but why should I be grateful for things that everyone else around me already has? It sounds a little condescending to me, as if someone is telling me to be grateful for my life because I could be so much worse off. I understand I could be worse off, but it really doesn't help with my mental state and situation right now.

  • All this did was make me more self-loathing, it made me feel miserable for hating my job, for hating what I do, for feeling lost and not knowing my purpose, and for not knowing what I want or who I really am. This caused me to be more depressed. What is the point of going to a job I hate, to work for people who wouldn't care if I died, to make money for people I dont like, so that I can get by. What a meaningless existence. I thought this might help, ive been so lost, and unsure of where to go or what to do with my life, feeling so pointless. I have fought for so long to get by until one of the many plans I have put into action pays off so I can finally be free to explore who I am and what I want to do, but the more and more I try, the more and more I feel smothered, set adrift in the seas of misery. Life is pain, it is misery, and most of all it is a disappointment. I hope someday to feel what you all feel.

It's really sad to see you so confident about those results. As a pop-sci channel you should at least share with us some of the criticism of gratitude and positive psychology...

    • From our sources document: Envy, narcissism, cynicism and materialism: #Thieves of Thankfulness: Traits that inhibit gratitude, 2016 www.researchgate.net/publication/301688846_Thieves_of_Thankfulness_Traits_that_inhibit_gratitude Quote: “Our results suggested that narcissism and cynicism were the strongest inhibitors of gratitude. Both of our self-esteem corrected measures of narcissism predicted declines in the frequency of grateful emotion. Cynicism also predicted significant decreases in gratitude over time. Both materialism and envy showed evidence of inhibiting grateful emotion, but these relationships appeared to be somewhat weaker.”

  • It all comes down to genetics. If you are small nobody cares about you, if you aren’t good looking you aren’t going to get any girls and nobody will want to associate with you. If you are an introvert people will treat you worse than a rapist. That’s just the way life is. People are disgusting.
