A Gratitude Planner

By Thursday, March 31, 2016 0 Permalink

A few months ago I read Martin Seligman's Flourish, and while I knew some of the concepts (he is the founder of the Positive Psychology concept), I hadn't tried actually writing a gratitude list at the end of every day. Turns out, it was one of the happiest and most fulfilled periods of my life. It's also ...

Focus: Learn something new

Life without meaning can be very depressing. Having no purpose behind what you do everyday can make your days grey and foggy like a November morning.
