Episode 3: Overcoming Negativity Bias.

Welcome to episode number 2 of the podcast. Today’s topic is: How to Create a Lifestyle of Gratitude.
Today, I will be sharing a process you can use to create a lifestyle of gratitude. You will be able to identify and journal special moments that you can celebrate for years to come.
In contrast to goal setting, which is future focused, Gratitude Hunting is a reflective process that focuses on the past. It's the opposite of goals setting. However, Gratitude Hunting also creates awareness, of what you can celebrate in the present moment.

Welcome to the very first episode of my new podcast. I’m so excited to share about the topics of goals and gratitude, which I am really passionate about. In today’s show, I’ll be sharing my own personal story, and I’ve called this episode: My Personal Gratitude Journey.
The aim of this podcast is to promote the benefits of gratitude, and help you set and achieve goals that really matter. I’m currently writing a book around this topic, and have decided that a podcast would be an excellent way to share some of the content along the way.
