What’s the best way to be happy and stay happy day in and day out? Practice being grateful. A huge new study, done in 54 countries, found that grateful people are more fulfilled and live richer lives.
Dr. Robert Emmons is a gratitude expert and professor of psychology. And he says gratitude acts like a psychological immune system– it lowers stress, boosts happiness, improves relationships, and generally makes you feel better about life. And that’s true even when things go wrong. Because gratitude isn’t about ignoring the problems in life-like illness or losing a job-it’s a way of looking at life, and seeking out the positive, no matter how small. And it’s a trait that can be cultivated. So, the better you are at focusing on, and appreciating, the good things in your life-the more good things you’ll start to see.Easy Ways To Be Happy
