Psychologist Robert Emmons recently told us about the many benefits of practicing gratitude.
– “First, the practice of gratitude can increase happiness levels by around 25%. Second, this is not hard to achieve – a few hours spent writing a gratitude journal over 3 weeks can create an effect that lasts 6 months if not more. Third, that cultivating gratitude brings other health effects, such as longer and better quality sleep time.”
Thanksgiving flew by for me this year without my taking the time to express gratitude to many of the people who have been so generous with their time and advice.
Given that this is a blog, I would like to say Thank You! to the following bloggers
*Zack at Brain Waves for suggesting launching a blog to share thoughts and impressions on our growing field.
*Brett at TraderFeed for his amazing insight and inspiration to do one’s best.
*Senia at Senia.com Positive Psychology Coaching for her constant support, whenever needed, and many times unexpected, yet always welcome.
*Mo at Neurophilosophy for submitting some of our posts to blog carnivals before we even knew what these were…
*Bora at for A Blog Around The Clock for his amazing energy and open mind.
*ilker at The Thinking Blog for helping us learn how to navigate social bookmarking sites.
*Inaki at Sarelinks (in Spanish) for helping me deal with many technical/ platform decisions.
How you can show gratitude to other bloggers who have been helpful to you:
1. Simply tag 7 other bloggers, writing a Thank You post like this one. The more specific you are on why you appreciate their support, the more they will enjoy reading about it.
2. You then email them to say they have been tagged.
If you are not a blogger, simply think of 7 people who have been nice to you, and call them to say Thank You during the upcoming holidays.
Enjoy this belated burst of “Thanksgiving”!
