Gratitude is an expression of appreciation for what we have. It is opposed to a consumer-oriented focus on what we want or may need. Studies show that we can deliberately cultivate gratitude, and increase our well-being by doing so. Grateful thinking, and sharing it with others, is associated with increased levels of energy, optimism, and empathy.
