Brian Johnson:


Here are 5 of my favorite Big Ideas from Gratitude Works! by Robert Emmons, Ph.D. Hope you enjoy it!

I’m grateful for Robert Emmons. He’s dedicated the last three decades of his life to understanding the science of how to boost our well-being. In the process, he’s conducted ground-breaking research on the power of gratitude. In fact, he’s basically THE researcher we have to thank for understanding *just* how powerful gratitude journaling is. (He's also served as editor-in-chief of The Journal of Positive Psychology.) I consider myself a reasonably grateful guy but this book has opened my eyes to JUST how powerful gratitude is. And, to just how important it is to DELIBERATELY PRACTICE it. Big Ideas we explore include:

– How to give yourself a 25% (!!!) boost in happiness,
– The top gratitude practices
– The #1 obstacle to gratitude (and its remedy)
– Using challenges for grateful fuel!
