Funny how awhile back I shared with you that I don't do quick fixes.

I've been testing something out for a few weeks now. I've been wanting to share about it with you since I learned about it.

Well, I've been diving into the science of gratitude. It's so cool.

The technique that Dr. Huberman shares about in his podcast episode is a sustainable and simple practice. It works if you keep at it.

The story that I use as an anchor for this new-to-me gratitude practice in when I received genuine, loving, kind gratitude from a dear neighbor elder friend while standing at her front door delivering cheese to her.

The Science of Gratitude & How to Build a Gratitude Practice
this episode, Dr. Huberman discusses the science of gratitude, shown in peer-reviewed studies, to have tremendous positive effects on mental and physical health.
I invite you to walk along with this episode.

I invite you to take a listen (or a watch, as the episode is on Youtube as well) to dig into sensing and maybe embodying this gratitude practice.

If you want to get to the goods, Dr. Huberman breaks the video up so you can go directly where you want to.

The whole episode was engaging to me. I invite you to take your sweet time listening to it over days, weeks or months. If you're interested in what is shared, take it as slow as you want!

There's really no need to rush... the information will be there if and when you're ready and available.

I think I might add "information overload" to the things I'm not here for because... well, I'm not here for that either!

I am here for gratitude and reciprocity.

Til next time,
