I’m Grateful For…
I recently read The Gratitude Diaries by Janice Kaplan. I loved learning how she was able to convert her natural pessimism to optimism by seeking out the bright side of things. (She spent a whole year committed to finding gratitude).
Janice recommends keeping a gratitude journal. It’s a great way to keep yourself in a thankful and positive state of mind. I encourage you to give it a try! You could make it focused on gratitude for your health, the people in your life, or anything that makes you feel energized, strong, or happy!
Gratitude Makes You Happier and Healthier
Happier people are healthier people. This excites me because I’m fascinated by the amount of control we have over our health. We can choose to grow happiness by choosing to express gratitude. Whether you write in detail or just take a moment to pause and reflect, the choice to do something is in your hands.
I’m grateful for this delightful piece on Gratitude by Arthur Brooks in the New York Times I’ve seen copiously shared in my social media feeds, primarily because he says even if you don’t feel grateful, you should practice gratitude anyway! (YESSSSS!)
