Happiness Hack – #50 Share Your Gratitude

Think about someone who has really made a difference in your life. Spend 10 minutes writing a heartfelt letter of gratitude to them. Then mail it to them, or even better read it to them in person. Showing gratitude helps you better manage stress, helps build a strong immune system, lowers blood pressure, increases your level of optimism, and helps you feel less lonely or isolated. Just feeling gratitude is not as effective, the benefits actually come from writing down how you feel. Sharing your feelings further strengthens those benefits. So write down how grateful you feel and share it with someone special. Sharing it also extends the benefits to them as well.

“Silent gratitude isn’t very much use to anyone” Gertrude Stein

About 

My Passion is helping people become successful and happy. I have found that many people want to be successful but just don’t know how. More importantly, people want to be successful because they feel that reaching some success pinnacle will result in them becoming happy. The research and my experience has shown that just the opposite is the case. Success does not lead to happiness. Happiness leads to success.

Happiness Hack #49 – Count Your Blessings

Spend 10 minutes counting your blessings. Don’t stop writing until the 10 minutes are up. Most people get about 7 to 10 items on their list before they slow down. Keep thinking until you have over 100 items on your list. Most of us have a lot more to be thankful for than we realize. We take for granted the simple things in our lives, like a bed to sleep on and running water. A job, a car, and a home are all blessings that many people in the world don’t have.

Become aware of all the blessings in your life and you will be happier.
