What makes you happy? Is it family and friends? Wealth and success? Health and well-being? Or all of the above? Whatever it may be, philosophers and thought-leaders agree that happiness is a state of being which cannot be attained as an end in itself. Happiness comes from within and can be attained with the simple, yet powerful act of gratitude. Gratitude is the acknowledgement and appreciation of the positive things that come our way that we did not actively work toward or ask for. Gratitude is not a mere emotional feeling or response, it is a choice we make. Meaning, we have the ability to capture the benefits by altering our own attitude of mind. Gratitude has the strongest link with mental well-being than any other character trait. Gratitude increases spiritualism, self-esteem, happiness, improves your sleep, and your energy levels. Gratitude even makes you more likely to exercise – according to an 11-week study of 96 Americans, those who kept a weekly journal exercised 40 minutes more per week than the control group. Other studies with the gratitude journal – writing one appreciative sentence for five things – just once a week, demonstrated significant effects. The group with the gratitude journal was more optimistic and felt happier. "Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance" — Eckhart Tolle
