    100 % delighted to hear you speak about the power of gratitude and its effect on our brains. In the words of Alcoholics Anonymous: “A grateful heart can’t drink” – e.g., replacing our maladaptive behavior with a simple action, like thanking the chair we sit on for its suppport, has power to change us, from the inside out- if we allow it. Thank you for sharing your clinical wisdom!
