Vocal Gratitude
Say out loud three things you are grateful for. Do this right now, before you go on reading this. Gratitude is often referred to as the shortest shortcut to happiness. The more grateful you are, the happier you will feel. Also, it is impossible to be grateful and depressed. Gratitude with a capital "G" is a deep spiritual realization that you are created perfectly and that everything you have ever wanted—love, joy, peace—is already yours.
