32. Gratitude in the Wild: Choose Wisely

In this episode, we're talking about the element of Gratitude and the third of our strategies to put it into practice (see the first and second strategies in episodes #30 and #31, respectively). This strategy of "Choosing Wisely" may sound boring or cliche (for example: Are you sick of #gratitude posts?), but this is where gratitude hits the real world and where we take action. And as we take actions that flex our gratitude muscles, we'll get stronger in this element and shift our default toward more grateful living. 

p.s. We're grateful you're here with us at the Joy Lab!
