An online gratitude journal


#1

Thnx4 is an online gratitude journal that makes it easier to say thanks, enjoy the benefits of thankfulness, and see what happens when you strengthen your habit of feeling and expressing gratitude.

Thnx4 was created by the Greater Good Science Center (GGSC) at the University of California, Berkeley. It draws on two decades of research suggesting that people who regularly feel grateful:

  • report better health, reduce their risk of heart disease, and get better sleep
  • strengthen feelings of connection and satisfaction in their relationships
  • feel more satisfied with their lives, more joy and optimism, and less anxiety.

What does this have to do with the EBTs?
We are all still here.

addendum: PLEASE feel encouraged to identify and discuss the EBT mentions of gratitude. :slight_smile: IMO it’s actually really important from time to time.

I’d be grateful if you did. =D

A person of integrity is grateful and thankful.

The good person is grateful and thankful, for the virtuous only know how to be grateful and thankful.

AN2.32

“Mendicants, the appearance of three people is rare in the world. What three? A Realized One, a perfected one, a fully awakened Buddha. A person who teaches the teaching and training proclaimed by a Realized One. A person who is grateful and thankful. The appearance of these three people is rare in the world.”
