It’s no secret that one of the keys to increasing happiness in life is to express gratitude and scientific studies consistently back up what we all understand intuitively.  I spent a lot of time over the past year meditating over modeh ani… internalizing that the very first word we put into the world each morning is “thankful”.  The thoughts and idea over modeh ani really demand a longer post but as we approach Rosh Hashana and bask in the splendor of the energy of the King being in the field I wanted to share this incredibly touching piece from the SoulPancake series “The Science of Happiness”.

What are you grateful for today?  How do you express your gratitude?  Do you have a private practice?  Do you let your gratitude show?  Share in the comments!
