“Psychologists have scientifically proven that one of the greatest contributing factors to overall happiness in your life is how much gratitude you show.”
~ Soul Pancake
Hypothesis: Expressing gratitude has a direct effect on a person’s happiness.
1. Write a letter to the person who has been influential in your life discussing why they are so important to you or how they have affected you.
2. Read letter (smiles, smirks, laughter, tears, tenseness of throat, all acceptable and probable responses.)
3. Call the above mentioned person.
4. Read them the letter you wrote in step 1.
Results: Results may vary.
Discussion: How do you feel now? Better? Worse? Embarrassed? Relieved?
Conclusion: Express your gratitude more often. Give thanks.
My phone call would start out a little like this: “Hi Daddy, please don’t hang up on me…”
