Did you know that being grateful could make you not only happier, but healthier as well? Each day tell someone three new things you have experienced that day that helped you feel a sense of gratitude, and you can increase your happiness by up to 70%, according to findings by psychologists. Why not share this practice with your loved ones and it may help you connect on a deeper level. Even young kids who don't comprehend war and hunger overseas will find it easier to appreciate our lifestyle on a personal level. Improvements in mental health, happiness and measurable changes in the energy from your heart have positive effects on your physical state of being. There is only one catch – you need to use this powerful positive exercise for 21 days to program your thinking to positive. What is not to love about life near Bribie Island?
