500 things to be grateful for –

Introduction ๐Ÿ‘‹

Did you know that being grateful, can actually make you feel more positive?

Psychological studies have shown that grateful people:

  • Experience more positive emotions
  • Experience fewer negative emotions such as depression, anxiety, and envy
  • Are more satisfied with life

Even some celebrities attribute their success to practicing gratitude!

Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.โ€

– Oprah Winfrey
