—Michael Angler

  • Practice Gratitude Daily reminderElevate your mood
  • Reduce feelings of depression
  • Help you feel more connected
  • Lower levels of inflammation
  • Reduce anxiety
  • Boost energy levels
  • Reduce the severity/symptoms of illness
  • Improve your sleep
  • Helps you develop stronger bonds and relationships
  • Help you become a better, more likeable, more trustworthy person

Simply put, giving thanks can make you happier, and by helping you get outside of yourself, stop being self-centered, and become other-focused, gratitude can help you get away from ruts, setbacks, and self-pity.  Darren Hardy’s message … “Don’t Wish For What You Don’t Want”

It may also make you more successful.  😉
