    Gratitude with Kathryn McClatchy

    Gratitude with Kathryn McClatchy

    Gratitude is so much more than just saying “Thank You.” It’s about the attitude, mindset, and practice of not only looking for the things we are thankful for, but taking the time to slow down, acknowledge what is good, and to find the good in what might appear to be not so good. A multitude of studies show that gratitude is essential for both physical and mental health.
    In this short holiday episode, Kathryn is going to share some of what she has learned in her five decades, and how we as writers can specifically apply that knowledge to improve our productivity and creativity. Although we are thinking of Thanksgiving here in the US this week, an attitude of Gratitude is imperative to our daily lives all year long, wherever you live.
