When was the last time you stopped to notice the sunset, the power of a hug or the strength of your body?
Finding Gratitude introduces the concept of gratitude into everyday life. Simply put, gratitude is being thankful. Too often, in our busy lives taking a moment to be thankful is low on our priority lists. However, using gratitude as a daily practice can help strengthen our minds and improve our lives. Being grateful helps us to flip negative thoughts into more helpful ones.
