Discover the life-changing power of practicing gratitude in your daily life with this new edition of the inspirational classic. Foreword by Mark Nepo, bestselling author of The Book of Awakening. Gratitude is a simple, profound practice that can transform your life. Research has confirmed its many emotional and physical benefits. Taking the time to notice and reflect upon good things opens our hearts, increases happiness, and puts us in a positive mindset where we are prone to notice what’s right instead of what’s wrong. In a series of brief, evocative essays, personal success mentor M. J. Ryan teaches you how to unlock the fullness of life through the simple joy of living from a grateful heart. As she writes, “Gratitude births only positive feelings: love, compassion, joy, and hope. As we focus on what we are thankful for, fear, anger, and bitterness simply melt away, seemingly without effort.” Attitudes of Gratitude will teach you how to reach this positive place.

What if you could change your life--without changing your life? Gretchen had a good marriage, two healthy daughters, and work she loved--but one day, stuck on a city bus, she realized that time was flashing by, and she wasn’t thinking enough about the things that really mattered. “I should have a happiness project,” she decided. She spent the next year test-driving the wisdom of the ages, current scientific studies, and lessons from popular culture about how to be happier. Each month, she pursued a different set of resolutions: go to sleep earlier, quit nagging, forget about results, or take time to be silly. Bit by bit, she began to appreciate and amplify the happiness that already existed in her life. Written with humour and insight, Gretchen’s story will inspire you to start your own happiness project. Now in a beautiful, expanded edition, Gretchen offers a wealth of new material including happiness paradoxes and practical tips on many daily matters: being a more light-hearted parent, sticking to a fitness routine, getting your sweetheart to do chores without nagging, coping when you forget someone’s name and more.

Peace, Love, Action! is an illustrated, illuminated A-Z of everyday actions that directly make a peaceful, fun, and vibrant world.

With a foreword by singer-songwriter and activist legend, Ani DiFranco.
