Learning to be grateful can increase happiness
Dr. Ike Shibley
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.
