How to Cultivate Gratitude and Get Happy

How to Cultivate Gratitude and Get Happy


Gratitude might best be described as a genuine feeling of thankfulness or an appreciation of a benefit one has received. Importantly, a number of recent studies in the relatively new field of positive psychology have begun documenting a host of positive links between gratitude and our physical and emotional wellbeing. One of the most positive findings to share is that gratitude is actually a skill—a skill that can be learned and then consciously called upon to significantly impact our happiness emotional quotient or “EQ”!

Does this all sound too good to be true?! Not surprisingly, your initial reaction might be that of suspicion and skepticism. We are practically trained in this day in age to respond in this way, as we are so accustomed to being bombarded with messages of disaster and despair.

Rest assured, your happiness EQ really is in your own hands…albeit a little bit of regular and strategic practice is needed!
