Gratitude Works! How Gratitude Heals, Energizes, and Transforms Lives

Summary

THIS LUNCHEON IS SPONSORED BY THE EMMONS LAB AT UC DAVIS


Program Description:
Gratitude encircles much of what we do and who we are. Its power derives from a need that is deeply entrenched in the human condition—the need to give thanks. The grateful mind and heart reap massive advantages in life. Research has shown that gratitude generates a positive ripple effect through every area of our lives, potentially satisfying some of our deepest yearnings—our desire for happiness, our pursuit of better relationships, and our ceaseless quest for inner peace, health, wholeness, and contentment. Practical tools for building gratitude reveal that life is a continual invitation to gratitude that can be created at any almost opportunity.
