How can I feel more gratitude?

Q: Is there a way to cultivate gratitude while in recovery from addiction
A: Yes. In fact, a daily practice of gratitude can change your life.

Recent studies indicate that people who frequently feel grateful have increased energy, more optimism, more stable social connections, and are happier than people who don't. Cultivating gratitude should be an ongoing task, a cycle that brings short and long-term benefit. 

People in recovery are not always aware of the specific actions needed on a daily basis to develop gratitude. But many times, even placing your hands on your heart or singing a favorite song may boost your positive emotions and provide you with good vibrations for the entire day.
