  1. I think this is a good idea but I should point out that the video proves absolutely nothing and seems very contrived. Also I know it’s tongue-in-cheek but as someone who as a hobby argues against pseudoscience the line “trust me, I’m in a lab coat” made me cringe.

    But yeah, I will try to appreciate people and good things more.


    • I’ve used a gratitude list for a while. I sometimes share what I wrote about — for example with/about my son. Usually, it was just for me. Anyway, I came about this when I discovered that the primary cause for my poor sleep nights was unresolved issues. A friend said, when you feel restless and irritable, write about happy memories. It brightens my spirits and relaxes me. I can’t measure the change with a survey like in the film. As time went on I evolved into a much more peaceful person… it continues in fact to improve my demeanor. I still write a gratitude list sometimes. I definitely take time to be thankful for good people in my life and to reach out when some of them have difficulties — and what you said: “It makes the other person happy but it also just raises your awareness toward good things in your life.” too.
