There is an abundance of research on happiness and gratitude..

I’ve made a personal study of it and here are some of my favorite facts  on happiness and gratitude.  Enjoy!:

Happy people generally are more forgiving, helpful, and charitable, having better self-control, and are more tolerant of frustration than unhappy people.

A 30 percent increase in one spouse’s happiness boosts the other spouse’s happiness, while a drop in one spouse’s happiness drags the other down.

Did you know that the brain is stimulated by surprise.

Research shows that acting in an outgoing, talkative, adventurous or assertive way makes people- even introverts-feel happier.

Making and sticking to a decision is a source of happiness because it gives you a sense of control, of efficacy, of responsibility.

At time of financial stress, taking control of your finances- even symbolically- can boost your mood because you’re taking steps to control and improve your situation.

Gratitude is important to happiness.  Studies show that consistently grateful people are happier and more satisfied with their lives; they even feel more physically healthy and spend more time exercising.

Gratitude fosters forbearance- it’s harder to feel disappointed with someone when you are feeling grateful toward him or her.

Gratitude connects you to the natural world, because one of the easiest things to feel grateful for is the beauty of nature.

Studies show that happier people are more likely to help other people.

Happier people are more interested in social problems.  They do more volunteer work and contribute more to charity.

One of the best ways to make yourself happy is to make other people happy.

One of the best ways to make other people happy is to be happy yourself!

A small child typically laughs more than four hundred times a day, and an adult- seventeen times.

Laughter can boost immunity and lower blood pressure and cortisol levels and increases people’s tolerance for pain.

Often a laughter response to someone’s  exasperation turns the situation around.

Yeats:  “We are happy when we are growing”.

Samuel Jackson: “The business of the wise man is to be happy”.

Publius Syrus: “No man is happy who does not think himself so”

Saint Therese:  I take care to appear happy and especially to be so.”

A story from Saint Therese:  p.264 The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin

Tolstoy: ” Nothing, can make our life, or the lives of other people, more beautiful than perpetual kindness.”

Creating but not owning,
Giving without demanding,
Controlling without authority,
This is love.”

This is love of a person, family and a formula for successful relationship and team building within any context.

Love
Love never claims, it ever gives; love never suffers, never resents; never revenges itself. Where there is love there is life; hatred leads to destruction.”
Mahatma Ghandi
We strive to be/do this.

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
Rumi
…and love will come. Be open and accepting; it will find you.

You yourself, as much as anybody in the universe, deserve your love and affection.” The Buddha
Self love must come first and more will follow.
