Gratitude is having a moment, and not to brag but we've kinda been on the gratitude train from the beginning. You see, at El and Al we exist to celebrate work life harmony, which is a holistic approach to integrating your personal and professional lives so you have less stress and more fulfillment. From our Purpose List to our morning and evening resources, we've always incorporated gratitude practices into everything we do because the science doesn't lie - grateful people live longer, are less sick, and are less lonely.
And here's the truly amazing thing about gratitude - you don't need to work super hard at it. In fact, you can literally start a gratitude practice right now. Seriously, stop reading this for a minute close your eyes and think of at least three things you are grateful for in this moment.
See - easy peasy. But, you probably already know this, right? Gratitude is a simple thing to do. So why do so many people forget to be grateful when faced with real world problems, gripes, and inconveniences? Well, it just so happens that there is some research on this that we want to share with you so you can stay grateful even when your circumstances aren't cooperating.
