The Science of Gratitude

Since the year 2000, psychological research has tied gratitude to a host of benefits: the tendency to feel more hopeful and optimistic about one’s own future, better coping mechanisms for dealing with adversity and stress, less instances of depression and addiction, exercising more, and even sleeping better. The degree to which we’re grateful “can explain more variance in life satisfaction than such traits as love, forgiveness, social intelligence, and humor,” sings one recent paper. “Gratitude is strongly related to all aspects of well-being,” declares another.

How Connectivity Changes Everything | David Amerland

How Connectivity Changes Everything | David Amerland | technology & education | Scoop.it

In this brand new world of constant information flow our value lies in our ability to help make sense of it all. Whether it’s fiction or non-fiction, books have to do more than simply entertain or inform. They have to empower and transform, meeting real needs and addressing direct concerns in their audience. 

Writers, we used to say, have to also be readers. But now we know that readers who take the time to connect and deeply interact with the writers they like themselves become influencers of the writing process. Writers, these days, need to not just read, but also share and listen. The requirements of the job description have changed somewhat and the end process is not just a book that a writer has wanted to write but one that readers have wanted to read.
