The Shortest Path To Happiness
by Kathy Smith
Thanksgiving is more than just a cultural tradition. Practicing gratitude can truly elevate our levels of happiness….in fact, studies show that it makes us 25% happier! Gratitude has the strongest link with mental well-being than any other character trait.
Here are some of my favorite gratitude quotes. Take them with you on a walk, or during the gentle stretching routine below.
“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them."
- John F. Kennedy
"If the only prayer you said in your whole life was,’thank you,’ that would suffice."
- Meister Eckhart
"Gratitude is a quality similar to electricity: it must be produced and discharged and used up in order to exist at all."
- William Faulkner
