It can be hard to be grateful when it seems like everything in life is going wrong. It can feel worse during the holidays when there's such a focus on family and thankfulness. On this episode of my podcast I sit down with Dr Joannie DeBrito, licensed mental health professional and frequent Focus on the Family contributor, talks about how to be grateful when we aren't feeling grateful, the process of grieving and how gratefulness can be part of the journey.

Did you know researchers have found that expressing gratitude has many health benefits as well?
Practicing gratitude has been scientifically proven to positively impact your brain. It can make us feel happier and better about ourselves, improve energy levels, help us cope with our problems, and even decrease mental health struggles like stress, anxiety, and depression.

Please share this episode as it might help someone who is having difficulty especially during this time of year.
