As most of you know, I love love love the science of happiness and gratitude.  And I enjoyed Dr Shibley’s talk about gratitude being the route to happiness.  It’s true that we live with a lot of anxiety, and the research shows that one antidote is gratitude.

He references Aristotle and ‘Tuesdays with Morrie’ – a book currently on my bedside table.  And, my favourite, he quotes a modern-day philosopher, Sheryl Crow: ‘It’s not having what you want, it’s wanting what you’ve got.’  Ike encourages us to write a detailed, daily gratitude list.

So, if you want to be happier, the power is in your hands, and in your pen.
