When you intentionally focus on gratitude – thinking about what you’re grateful for – it improves every aspect of your life. Even if you think the “practice of gratitude” is nonsense.
Since this is Thanksgiving week in the US, Kitty and I wanted to pay attention this week to how gratitude can transform your life. We talk about what it is, and then suggest some strategies for incorporating it into your daily routine.
I also wanted to take this opportunity to say thanks. For listening to the podcast, for your emails, and for reaching out on social media.
