According to the Harvard Medical School, “In positive psychology research, gratitude is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness. Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships.”

This month I posted on gratitude and celebration. December is a month for me to look back on the year and be grateful for the many gifts in my life – both big and small.

Being grateful rewires the brain to be more optimistic. Gratitude helps me connect to things outside of me, and to gain perspective.

Today I am grateful for:

  • The warmth of a tea mug in my hand
  • A safe and warm home
  • A supportive family
  • Clean water
  • A career that I love
  • Health

 

To practice gratitude ask yourself these four questions at the end of the day:

  • What touched me today?
  • Who or what inspired me today?
  • What made me smile today?
  • What’s the best thing that happened today?

 

If you’d like to start off the new year off on a positive note, practice gratitude! Wishing you a wonderful, healthy & prosperous next trip around the sun!
