Look for a little bit of good, even in the midst of personal & global suffering

When we search for the good, even the tiniest amounts, we lift ourselves up, and as we do, we increase our ability to see others and ourselves through a positive lens.

Researchers have shown that when you engage in a regular gratitude practice, you can actually alter the wiring of your brain.
