Do you ever find yourself taking life for granted? Many of us seem to be constantly moving from task to task without much time to stop and take stock of where we are at.
One of the most effective pathways to positive emotion is practicing gratitude every day. In positive psychology research, gratitude has been linked to increased happiness, improved health, better relationships and even increased resilience in the face of challenging situations. Pretty profound results for such a simple practice!
Do yourself a favour for the next week. Begin a new habit. Before the end of each day, stop and soak in the positive experiences of the day. Call to mind one thing that went well and three things be grateful for. This simple task can set you on a path to improved happiness and it won’t take you longer than a couple of minutes!
