It's easy to look at others and think how lucky they are, and sometimes finding the positives in our own lives can be hard. Success is often measured in tangible ways, and as we strive to achieve more and get more, we forget that it's often the simple things that can bring us the most joy. After reading about how expressing gratitude for the little things can be incredibly powerful and affect our lives in profound ways, Janice Kaplan decided to spend a year living gratefully and find out whether being grateful really does offer a new path to happiness.

Her experiences of living gratefully will be anchored by intriguing research findings, as well as in-depth interviews with real people, those in public life, and neuroscientists and experts in the field, including Dr Martin Seligman and Dr Robert Emmons, the world's leading scientific expert on gratitude.

Recounted with warmth and humour, this story-filled memoir will inspire readers to reflect on the true meaning of gratitude, and provide them with a structure and context for making significant changes in every aspect of their lives. For not only can gratitude make you more honest, courageous and generous; research has shown that it can also improve overall health and reduce stress and depression.

Review:

Praise for The Gratitude Diaries

"Uplifting and entertaining, this book is sure to give readers a more positive perspective."
--Booklist

"If you liked Sheryl Sanberg's Lean In... read Janice Kaplan's The Gratitude Diaries."
--Time Magazine

"Kaplan's plan to be more grateful is approachable for anyone. Her conversational tone is encouraging, like talking to a good friend who's having a great day and wants to share it with you... Simple, effective procedures that can be easily incorporated into even the busiest lifestyle."
--Kirkus

"Kaplan's study is insightful and loaded with compelling research and solid techniques for positive thinking, and her own example provides the most convincing testament to her ideas."
--Publishers Weekly

"The subtitle says it all: How a Year Looking on the Bright Side Can Transform Your Life. Kaplan interweaves anecdotes from her year of living gratefully with interviews with doctors, psychologists, philosophers, artists and A-list actors, teaching you that working at being happy pays off."
--American Way

"A heartfelt, thoughtful, and entertaining read on how we can bring more gratitude into our lives. It's like The Happiness Project meets Thanksgiving--a guided tour through the science and experience of appreciation."
--Adam Grant, Wharton professor and New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take

"Janice Kaplan has written a warm, inspiring, wonderful book, showing each of us how gratitude and focusing on our blessings can transform our lives."
--Jane Green, New York Times bestselling author of Jemima J and The Beach House

"Can there really be such a thing as a hardheaded woman's practical guide to living in gratitude? There can and there is. After reading about Janice Kaplan's transformative year, I'm here to say I believe it!"
--Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of #1 New York Times bestseller The Deep End of The Ocean

"I recognized myself in almost every word of Laura's excellent book. And tracking my hours was an eye opener for me, as it appears I'm one of the people who's been unrealistic about how I spend my days. This book is liberating, useful, and so important in this era in which everyone seems to feel overwhelmed."
--Celeste Headlee, author of We Need to Talk
