Thankful Thursday – Robert Emmons: What Good Is Gratitude?

Great talk on the power of gratitude, the power of two simple words “Thank You.” It is a great practice that can result in many positive changes. I keep a daily gratitude journal to ensure that gratitude is a constant presence in my life. How do you practice gratitude? Share in the comments.

Why is Gratitude Good:

1) Celebration of the present – a magnification of positive emotions

2) Blocks negative and toxic emotions

3) Stress resilient – a gratitude buffer zone

4) Increases social ties and a feeling of self-worth
