Today I have on researcher Courtney Ackerman, but she isn’t just any researcher; she specializes in compassion and well-being. What I loved about this interview is that we focus on what makes us flourish and what elevates us, rather than focusing on the negative. How can you find gratitude in the everyday? Well you have to first find positivity – you know those elevated emotions – so that you can find gratitude for the mundane, like a fork. Yes that’s right, a fork. Imagine trying to eat a salad without a fork! Man would that be messy, right? Today is about connecting to true gratitude – gratitude about the mundane things that mean the most but we often overlook because we take them for granted. Together we’ll discover how to have a true attitude of gratitude!
