Gratitude — a skill for happier living. Adopting an attitude of gratitude physically changes your brain, improving emotional response, rational thinking and decision making. Start by writing down a few things you are grateful for every morning. After a while, you don’t even have to consciously think about, just sit back and reap the benefits.
Foster your relationships. Social connections and a sense of community not only make you happier, but they are also associated with better overall health and longer life. One of the easiest ways to do this is to spend less time behind a screen when you’re with your favorite people. Seek out those face-to-face interactions as much as possible.

You have to constantly remind yourself that you are still perfectly capable of learning throughout your life. Check out this article on other ways to stay curious.
Spread the happiness and share the love!
