If you look to others for fulfillment, you will never truly be fulfilled. If your happiness depends on money, you will never be happy with yourself. Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you. Lao Tzu

How Can Gratitude Help You Give And Receive More Joy In Your Life?
For starters, gratitude is proven to offer people a dose of optimism. Gratitude also provides us with a sense of happiness because it reminds us of what we do have, particularly in a culture of desire. Having an attitude of gratitude offers us a realization of plenty.
When we’re faced with adversity, shifting to an attitude of gratitude can help you see the positive angle of your challenges, as opposed to always seeing and fearing the worst case scenario. Being grateful raises our vibrations. In this short gratitude meditation, I support you in connecting the body with the mind and take a step-back from the busy day.
An additional benefit to incorporating a gratitude practice is that it slows you down a bit to enjoy a few moments of mindfulness. Depending upon the environmental cue, or the stress management strategies you implement in your life, you could potentially slow down for up to 20 minutes. Meditation does this.
This slowing down allows your heart and body rhythms to take in the experiences of your daily life. Did you enjoy that morning cup of coffee, or did you simply drink it by habit? What roast did you use this morning, and was it a mindful choice to enhance your own coffee experience?
