Sometimes, human nature leads people to become pessimistic and negative about circumstances. Maybe it is related to their career goals or a shifting workplace environment. Maybe they are struggling to balance their personal and professional lives. Indeed, a worldwide pandemic has made many reevaluate their life. Often, that can be overwhelming. No matter how people get to that point, it is easy to get lost in "what ifs" and "should haves". This can lead to a downward spiral that affects their personal life or professional performance. How can we help others prevent, or overcome, these negative thoughts and feelings? How can we lean into the healing power of gratitude? Why does increasing gratitude in just a few people matter to organizations as a whole?

. The positive emotions associated with gratitude can improve relationships, optimism, and mental health. Not only does this improve the quality of life for the individual, but it can also produce a ripple effect through your organization.
