What you’ll hear in this episode: • The benefits of practicing gratitude (to our emotional, psychological, and physical health!). • What it even means to "practice" gratitude. (And how doing so can help you experience more spontaneous gratitude as well!) • A short gratitude practice that you can incorporate into your daily routine that is supported by a bunch of research. Resources mentioned in this episode: • I mentioned Robert Emmons (from the University of California, Davis) and his research on gratitude.
