Summary

For most of us, gratitude comes easily when things are going well. But putting it into practice when life throws you a curveball is another story. In Gratitude: The Essential Practice for Happiness and Fulfillment, cultural anthropologist and educator Angeles Arrien shows you how to cultivate the power of deep appreciation so that it becomes a way of life - simply and naturally.

Integrating the newest social science research with stories, prayers, insights, and practices from cultures and traditions spanning the world, Arrien gives you the time-tested wisdom to help you master the art of giving thanks every day. Gratitude invites you to explore:

  • How to overcome habitual tendencies toward envy, comparison, and narcissism
  • The top 10 practices for remaining grateful, including keeping a gratitude journal, "remembering the bad to appreciate the good", and regularly writing notes and letters of thanks
  • Naikan - the Japanese Buddhist practice of intensely meditating on your interconnections to develop a steady flow of gratitude in relationships
  • Indigenous teachings about using daydreams and wishes to create a spirit of healing and blessing

Recent studies have shown that a daily gratitude practice can significantly change your life, improving sleep, overall energy, and emotional well-being. With Gratitude, Angeles Arrien offers you an inspiring call to open your heart and experience the profound gifts that come when we fully embrace gratitude.
