Thankfulness is the beginning of Happiness

People think gratitude follows happiness.  But actually it’s the opposite – being thankful makes you happy.  Here are 3 ways to get more grateful.

  1. Keep a gratitude journal.  Every day, write down 3 things you’re grateful for.  Research shows this one small practice can make you feel more optimistic and better about your life.
  2. Write a thank you note.  Once a month, send a handwritten card to someone who has not been properly thanked for their kindness.  You’ll get a huge happiness boost, and so will the lucky recipient.
  3. Fill a gratitude jar.  Every time you feel overcome with gratitude for something, jot it down on scrap paper and put it in a jar.  Empty the jar on New Year’s Eve, and relive all those wonderful moments.
