Learn: Importance of gratitude
"Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance." Eckhart Tolle
Does happiness make us grateful? Or does being grateful make us happy?
We often fall into the trap of thinking we need that one more thing to make us happy. And yet a huge amount of psychological research shows that despite someone’s circumstances, practicing gratitude has a significant effect on happiness and gratitude (as well as a number of other benefits)
Dr Robert A. Emmons found that participants who spent 10 days reflecting on things they were grateful for reported feeling more optimistic and better about their lives, exercising more and having less visits to their doctor than those who wrote about daily irritations or neutral experiences.
