Rewiring Your Brain Using Gratitude With Nancy Davis Kho: Mother of Reinvention Episode 4

If, like me, you’ve ever had a bit of a cynical attitude about gratitude journals and other thankfulness projects, this episode is for you! The year she turned 50, writer and podcaster Nancy Davis Kho embarked on an ambitious project: to write thank-you letters to 50 people who had impacted her in both positive and negative ways, ultimately helping to shape her life. That undertaking eventually became a book: The Thank you Project: Cultivating Happiness One Letter of Gratitude At A Time. In today’s episode of The Mother of Reinvention Show, Nancy and I discuss “milestone” birthdays, how to rewire your brain toward positivity, how gratitude helps strengthen resilience and more.
