The gift that keeps on giving!

National Lampoons Christmas Vacation had a most memorable scene where Clark, revealing his year-end bonus is a one year membership to the Jelly of the Month Club, and Eddie replies, “that’s the gift that keeps on giving the whole year.” 

Well, that is not the gift I am referring to…

It’s gratitude!

Studies in positive psychology show that when we deliberately promote gratitude it increases our well-being and happiness.  In addition, expression of it to others is directly linked with increased energy, optimism, and empathy

This holiday season, be grateful!
