Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence defines gratitude as “a state of mind that arises when you affirm a good thing in your life that comes from outside yourself.”

It is widely believed across the field of psychology that gratitude is connected to happiness, overall success in life, and better health. It helps you stay more present, mindful, and grounded to the joy about you.

“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson
