52 Weeks of Gratitude

Get Lisa’s 52 Weeks of Gratitude

Gratitude is a PRACTICE, so you don’t have to be PERFECT. Do what you can, with what you have, where you are and you’ll be happier - guaranteed.

Still not convinced? A recent study on gratitude by Psychologist Robert Emmons found the following benefits of a daily practice of gratitude:

1. Greater happiness. People who kept a gratitude journal were 25% happier than those who just kept a journal of routine daily events.

2. Better sleep. People who kept a gratitude journal slept 12% longer and woke up 15% more refreshed than those that didn't.

3. Physical. Gratitude journalers exercised 30% more than their non-journaling counterparts.

4. No side effects. Optimism, gratitude and other self-development practices are being studied to determine their ability to short- circuit depression and reduce blood pressure.

Whether you believe this will work or not, Lisa challenges the reader to give it a try. The only stipulation is to go into it with an open mind and open heart. Negativity doesn’t cut it in life, and it doesn’t work here either.

Are you up for it? For the next 52 weeks, read a chapter and contemplate the lesson and how you can apply it to your life. Look for ways to implement gratefulness into your life. Keep track of all that is changing for you - as well as the reaction of others. You’ll be glad you did.

"Be consistent with your gratitude practice, and you’ll be awed by your blessings."
