An antidote to dissatisfaction.

Kurzgesagt (please don’t ask me to pronounce that) with a beautifully produced video about how we can free ourselves from dissatisfaction. And how gratitude is the best tool we have for doing so:

Scientists found that gratitude stimulates the pathways in your brain involved with feelings of reward, forming social bonds, and interpreting others’ intentions. It also makes it easier to save and receive positive memories.

Even more, gratitude directly counteracts negative feelings and traits, like envy and social comparison, narcissism, cynicism, and materialism. As a consequence, people who are grateful, no matter what for, tend to be happier and more satisfied.
