“Gratitude neutralises negative emotions” (Sonja Lyubomirsky) 

I am doing a lot of research for my new “It’s All About Gratitude”  eBook on the scientific studies of the relationship between gratitude and happiness and I am wonderfully amazed by the findings.  Below is a Greater Good Science Centre, YouTube video of Sonja Lyubomirsky, Professor of Psychology, University of California, Riverside, in which she talks about one of those gratitude studies, “Count Your Blessings” – I am sure you will find it very interesting indeed.

Through a series of events, I ended up attending a live local theatrical production of “Monty Python’s Spamalot.”

I had no idea what to expect, nor did the 6 people who joined me. We like trying new things and figured we’d at least have a ‘different’ night out.
