On Gratitude...

I'm thankful for cat love. 

Yes, I realize Thanksgiving was last month. I'm just now getting around to attempting a little experiment on being grateful. 

While listening to NPR over Thanksgiving weekend, Jason happened to hear this interview with Dr. Andrew Weil and shared it with me. The most interesting part to me: 

"There's a simple exercise from positive psychology called keeping a gratitude journal. You get a little notebook, keep it by your bed; during the day, make mental notes of things you have to be grateful for, jot them down when you go to bed. Doing that for one week can cause improvement of mood for up to six months. And that's pretty dramatic."

I'm starting today. 

I'll let you know how it goes!
