Show Notes

Do you find it difficult to pump yourself up some days? Link you just aren't in a great mood and are unable to snap out of it?

Well, it isn't just you! Don't worry!

As humans we have a greater propensity for unhappiness than happiness! But why is that. It's evolutionary. Back in the day we had to be on the lookout so you didn't die.

Even though we are wired for be unhappy and look for the bad and the threats all around us, the good news is you can change the wiring in your brain. Circuits in your brain are plastic meaning they can change…no matter your age. You can in fact teach an old dog new tricks! 

Its been shown that gratitude practice performed regularly can shift the circuitry in your brain so you are happier on average...even outside of those time you are not practicing gratitude.

Replay that moment of gratitude that you did yesterday. Feel how you felt in your moment of gratitude. Now notice if that extends to other parts of your day.
