Practicing gratitude is easy, and the benefits are huge. In this little book of essential mindfulness and coloring, bestselling author and teacher Cher Kaufmann helps readers to focus on the good and leave the rest behind. She provides hand-drawn inspirational quotes to color. Interacting on the page with the words, "When eating a fruit, think of the person who planted the tree," gives the artist a double dose of self-worth. Coloring has shown time and again to calm body and soul. Here are very simple line drawings of symbols and nature to color in ten minutes or less. Rounding out the book are meditations, musings, and suggestions for discovering inner grace.
Science has shown that gratitude heals those who embrace it on multiple levels. Such people are more optimistic and hopeful, sleep better, and experience less anxiety and depression. Every page of Gratitude inspires readers to tap into their own gratitude and celebrate the wonder that is life. Rather than waiting for a holiday to give thanks, start now.
