Living In Gratitude: The Art of Being Happy

The art of being happy lies in the power of extracting happiness from common things. ~Henry Ward Beecher

It’s easy to take being grateful for granted. It’s easy to say, “Yea sure, gratitude,” and wave it off as positive thinking ‘mumbo jumbo’.

There is incredible power in gratitude

It has been scientifically proven that when people engage in a regular practice of heartfelt gratitude, they experience increased physical, psychological, and interpersonal benefits. Studies have repeatedly shown that gratitude is an essential contributor to our happiness and wellbeing. Some people have stated that their practice of gratitude led to transformative life changes.

Practice the art of happiness. Notice and appreciate the common things.

  • The song of crickets on a warm summer night
  • The smell of homemade cookies
  • How the softness of your pillow cradles your head
  • Being transported to another place by a great novel
What common things bring you happiness?

May your day be filled with gratitude and good things.
