“Give yourself a gift of five minutes of contemplation in awe of everything you see around you. Go outside and turn your attention to the many miracles around you. This five-minute-a-day regimen of appreciation and gratitude will help you to focus your life in awe” - Wayne Dyer
Many studies have proven that practicing daily gratitude can make you more resilient, feel more optimistic, creative, happier, determined, enthusiastic, energised, less stressed and build stronger relationships.
According to Eric Mosley and Derek Irvine, authors of the book The Power of Thanks, "Gratitude magnifies the spirit and promotes well-being. In good times and bad, authentic appreciation creates perspective, literally stepping back from the distractions of the moment and affirming something more lasting than passing circumstance."
