Taking time to notice and reflect upon the things you’re thankful for has a positive and uplifting effect on your emotional well-being. Research suggests that practicing gratitude helps you feel more alive, sleep better, express more compassion and kindness, and even boosts your immune system. And it doesn’t have to be just the big things you express gratitude for, it can be little everyday things like a cold drink on a hot day.

Today’s microlearning is an exercise that uses a technique called counterfactual thinking to help you appreciate the positive things that have happened in your life that make you who you are today.
