During the post-Thanksgiving hustle of holiday shopping, end-of-year work deadlines, and increased social activities, we can easily forget to be grateful. While most of us make a conscious effort to stop and give “thanks” during Thanksgiving, the acknowledgement of our blessings tends to fade over the course of the year. Why is it important to be grateful? This TED Talk video proposes that it is gratefulness that makes us happy, not the other way around.
Watch this feel-good video and make a year-long commitment to stop and reflect on personal gratitude at every opportunity. It could help to change the world for the better and it will certainly increase your personal happiness.
