Jude: It is often said that our minds are problem solving devices; and even if there are no problems, they will create them. Well, there are a lot of problems, so we really don’t need to create any more. But might we sometimes be overly focused on the negatives? Is it really helpful to be spinning all the conflicts and challenges and worries in our minds 24/7? Come get relief from our brain’s unfortunate negativity bias by practicing gratitude. Gratitude not only softens the anxiousness in our mind, but also softens our whole being, opening us up to the good and beauty in ourselves and the world. Come deepen your connection—to yourself, your loved ones, to the natural world—through the practice of gratitude.
