Welcome to Planet Gratitude

Standard

…where we are all set to embark on an exploration of the ways gratitude can change our world. We are Nina Lesowitz and Mary Beth Sammons, co-authors of The Grateful Life and Living Life as a Thank You, as well as this site where we will expand on the universal themes we examine in our books.

In our interviews and research, we have discovered that a consistent practice of gratitude is the most effective way to overcome obstacles and experience joy.

Our posts will feature new stories and highlight the work of academic researchers, mental health professionals, spiritual leaders, and scientists whose research empirically proves that people who are more grateful tend to be happier, less isolated, less stressed, and more satisfied with their lives, and to act with more generosity and compassion for others.
