In the Buddhist tradition, desire is the root of all suffering; when we’re dissatisfied with our lives its because we’re attached to the idea that something better is out there that we don’t have. You might look at gratitude as being the antidote to that sense of dissatisfaction - we can be grateful for the important things in our life, the people we love or our health but also the little things like what we eat and our breath. Practicing being thankful works in the same way as our usual mindfulness, training our minds with a guided meditation or stopping every so often during the day to notice what's going on. Its in these moments we can draw happiness from the world in front of us.
