“Happiness doesn’t make us grateful, gratitude makes us happy.”
Gratitude is a really powerful emotion. Not only does it make us feel good, but there are a number of positive health effects on both our mental and physical health.
Whether through writing a thank you note, keeping a gratitude journal or just being extra polite to your morning barista, there are a ton of ways to show more gratitude. But something that easy isn’t A.J. Jacobs’ style.
A.J. Jacobs is an author, journalist, lecturer and human guinea pig. He has written four NY Times bestsellers. In his most recent book, Thanks A Thousand, Jacobs decides to personally thanks 1,000 people that helped to produce his morning cup of coffee.
In this episode, we walk through his journey and how powerful gratitude can be for you and those around you.
