Gratitude Week on Gab with the Gurus: Experts Galore July 19 to 23

Posted Jul 16 2010 5:38pm

Gratitude-rock I'm pleased to announce that I'm presenting a special Gratitude Week on Gab with the Gurus from July 19 to 23.

For Gratitude Week, you'll get to listen to 5 different shows that focus on different benefits you receive from having a thankful state of mind.

For instance, you'll ll learn how to use gratitude to become happy, forgive, cope better and resolve your food and sugar issues.

You'll also discover how being grateful can enhance optimism, love, feelings of empowerment and having enough.

In addition, you'll learn that gratitude is the antidote to depression. 

Gratitude You'll find out for what things celebrities are grateful.

You'll get the scoop on the power of gratitude lists. You'll even discover that gratitude dispels grouchiness.

You'll learn that an attitude of gratitude can make you more optimistic, can help manage stress, get your life in balance and boost your spirituality.

And you'll get tips on how gratitude can help you set goals, be more creative and move through pain more easily.

Gratitude Week was inspired by my scary July 4 collision into glass -- an accident that led to be grateful that I'm alive. I'm fortunate in that I'm suffering only from post-concussive syndrome (headaches, dizziness and some confusion) rather than losing my life or drastically maiming my face.

You can listen to all Gratitude Week shows live at 2 pm Eastern or later, at your convenience. For now, here is the schedule.
