Grateful people are happier, less depressed, less stressed, and more satisfied with their lives and social relationships. They also have more control of their environments, personal growth, purpose in life, and self acceptance.
They have more positive ways of coping with the difficulties they experience in their lives, being more likely to seek support from other people, and grow from their experience, rather than be overwhelmed by the experience.
Grateful people also have more positive coping strategies, and are less likely to try to avoid the problem, deny there is a problem, or blame themselves or someone else.
Grateful people sleep better, and this seems to be because they think less negative and more positive thoughts.
All in all the person who has developed a grateful heart through practice, and life’s everyday experiences, has a tremendous edge over everyone else.
Lets be Grateful and be more satisfied and happy.
I love going through ZenPencils – often my favorite quotes are transformed into comic stories. The recent one about the social media generation is a new one for me, but it hits home. Many a times having lunch with my friends , I see people on their phones and I guess the zen pencil story below makes absolute sense.
Always on the lookout for something special, I spied a restaurant in an odd location in Kuwait City and stopped to take a look. SLICE – run by two Kuwaiti entrepreneurs serves Greek gyros and German döners. The restaurant is a bit small with a limited menu but it more than makes up with its quality.
Open from 6:00pm to 10:30pm, Slice offers Chicken or döner Beef in a wrap or pita bread with the normal array of vegetables. Their success lies with their range of sauces, from Tzatziki to Tahina which elevate the meal to a new level.
I tired both the bread- the pita was good but the wrap with Tahina, Chilli and Garlic for nothing short of amazing.
Each bread (includes the whole sandwich) costs 1.750 KD – the place is not fancy but it should be on your list of places to try.
Location – Kuwait City, Between the Liberation Tower and Baitek
