Let's reflect on the year that was. However, considering the challenges of the year - the perspective this episode takes is that of gratitude. Research in Positive Psychology has found that gratitude and happiness are always strongly correlated. Gratitude moves people to experience more positive emotions, to thoroughly enjoy the good experiences, better their health, face adversity, and develop and maintain relationships of strength, which in turn makes you happier. In this episode I have invited dear friends to share with us what, in spite of the challenges of 2020, they are most grateful for. My intention is to create space for gratitude. My hope is that as we recognize our own blessings, hopefully you listening will notice the good in your own life and we can exit 2020 a little bit happier. Enjoy the episode.
“There is a calmness to a life lived in gratitude, a quiet joy.” — Ralph H. Blum
