A celebration of the power of gratitude and how it can change your life and that of everyone around you.
Can being more grateful change your life? Ongoing research suggests that it does. Practising gratitude has a positive impact on the brain and changes the way we feel about the world – and each other. Gratitude extends far beyond the ritual of sharing gifts or saying thank you. It is a form of recognition – a way of appreciating the kindness, beauty and wonder that life has to offer. Gratitude connects us to one another and to the world we live in. It increases our wish to nurture, help and protect one another, and increases our sense of belonging. In Thank You: A Little Book of Gratitude, you will find practical and conscious ways to embrace gratitude that offer lasting meaning, from creative ways to turn a simple thank you into a heartfelt gift to strategies to help us to see life with brighter eyes. Try keeping a gratitude journal, whether on paper or using an app, or making a gratitude altar. Discover meditations to end your day on a grateful note and to help you find your way back to thankfulness when times are hard. You will soon find that gratitude becomes a way of life and will reap the benefits, both emotional and physical.
