What good is gratitude? 1.Gratitude allows us to celebrate the present. 2.Gratitude blocks toxic, negative emotions, such as envy, resentment, regret— emotions that can destroy our happiness. 3.Grateful people are more stress resistant. 4.Grateful people have a higher sense of self-worth.

Partly because these challenges to gratitude can be so difficult to overcome, I get asked a lot about how we can go beyond just occasionally feeling more grateful to actually becoming a more grateful person.
