It’s time again for Gratitude Sunday! A few weeks ago I introduced this tradition because I think gratitude is so important to our happiness.
There are so many benefits of practicing gratitude, but I wanted to specifically share this one with you today: In a series of experiments in the the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, listing off all the things you are thankful for were linked with a brighter outlook on life and a greater sense of positivity.
Here are 3 things I’m grateful for today:
1) Getting to taste my neighbor’s oh-so amazing cherry tomatoes that he grows in his garden. They were the BEST tomatoes I’ve ever eaten and truly inspired me to start up a vegetable garden again.
2) Spotting these happy cookies at my local bakery. Of course I had to get them 🙂
3) Getting to practice yoga outside. It’s amazing what a difference it makes for me to exercise outside vs. inside. I enjoy it so much more! Plus, I’m kind of obsessed with my new “Exhale Only Love” tank I got at Wanderlust.
I’m also super excited AND grateful that I get to announce a really fun new project, called Paper Nostalgia, that has to do with snail mail and connecting all of us Happsters on a deeper level. Look for that announcement this week!
What are you grateful for today? Let me know in the comments!
