How gratitude can get the life you really want...

Gratitude is your soul's superfood, but cheaper than goji berries, and twice as good for you. I like to think of it as mindfulness for cynics or the 'gateway drug' to spirituality. It's a very tangible thing you can do everyday that will shift your focus to what you have rather than pining and obsessing over what you don't have. Away from a state of lack into limitless abundance....

So what happens when we stop taking things for granted and start putting some grá* into our gratitude? When we consciously turn our heads and hearts to what we have and focus on the good? In Joyrider, television presenter and host of the podcast Thanks a Million, Angela Scanlon, presents her guide to tapping into your own natural super resource—joy.

This audiobook is an invitation to embrace the kind of gratitude that cuts through the bullshit of life to its truth, connecting us with the present and grounding us in self. When there is so much to feel anxious about, Angela shares with listeners how focusing our attention on the small, incremental positives in life can completely change it for the better.

* It means love in Irish.

Thank you!

I listened to all of this in one go on the train home and stepped onto the platform at the end of my journey a little lighter. So wonderfully thoughtful and clearly mapped out. I feel I have a little toolkit now to help me see things in a more positive way when sometimes that can be hard. Thank you for this gem of a book - I’ve started and ended my day more joyfully since listening!

Just one hour in and I love it!

Just started listening to this (after waiting for what felt like a lifetime) on a stroll with my toddler. Tears, smiles and all the feels. Thank you Angela
