How Practicing Gratitude Makes You Happier  

Science-backed Reasons Why You Should Laugh More 

How Meditation Changes the Brain 

Most of us are on a perpetual quest to find happiness. It's easy to see how successfully fulfilling a goal or acquiring something new can bring pleasure. But happiness is fleeting. Soon the “new” thing becomes old, and life will inevitably lead to other feelings, such as fear, anger, and sadness. A lasting and more secure route to happiness and contentedness is to practice gratitude. 

A good sense of humor won't cure all ailments, but data is mounting about the positive effects of laughter. It doesn't matter if you are full-on belly laughing or quietly giggling, laughter has short- and long-term benefits for the mind and body.

Recent research indicates that meditation alters the brain’s structure and how it functions, as well as changing the brain’s networks. These changes correlate with a reduction in stress, anxiety, and depression; improvements in focus and memory; and might even preserve the brain as it ages. Adding meditation to your life could be the missing link in your health and wellness plan.
