The Benefit To Grateful Living


Loving my certification program in applied positive psychology – favorite quote from tonight's lecture by Robert Emmons (thought-leader and researcher on the psychology of gratitude and it's impact on human flourishing) – “Gratitude is the fabric of our life – it's the emotional spackle that fills in the cracks of relationship”.

The research in this space is exciting – adopting a simple practice of gratitude and incorporating it into your lifestyle has the potential to make a significant impact on your life satisfaction. In short, Emmons said, “there is a cost to ungrateful living and a benefit to grateful living”. I'm feeling pretty grateful, how about you?
