You Have The Power Within YOU to Find Joy, Happiness, & Inner Peace.
THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING TO BE THANKFUL FOR
Choose Gratitude was founded to empower you with information around gratitude, happiness, mindfulness and compassion to help cultivate in you a greater appreciation for your experiences, the people you interact with, and your world. Choose Gratitude strives to bring a gratitude mindset to the forefront of our awareness.
The Founder, Diviya Lewis, a Registered Psychotherapist (Q) in Ontario, also provides individual and group therapy in Toronto. She conducts corporate lunch'n'learns, psycho-educational workshops, and has spoken at various Conferences (i.e. Conference Board of Canada Workplace Mental Health Conference, Young Women in Business Conference) on the Power of Gratitude.
We advocate for an evidence-based approach, using research to explore the various practices that improve our well-being and happiness, empowering individuals and teams with the education, tools, & support to create, sustain & grow their gratitude mindset.
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
HOW DOES GRATITUDE HELP YOU FLOURISH?
Enhancing Mindfulness In Your Life
Acknowledging what you do have in your life is the essence of gratitude. In order to truly do this, we must be present in each moment, and aware of our surroundings.
To Bend Without Breaking
Gratitude strengthens your resilience, allowing you to face problems in your life with patience, reason, & wisdom. It helps you appreciate the struggle that makes you stronger.
Fostering Love For Those Around You
Appreciation is the foundation of healthy relationships. Gratitude strengthens the bond you have with those around you, and reminds you of the abundance in your life.
The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.
-- Mahatma Gandhi
A Quantitative Research & Qualitative Web-Series Initiative
Research indicates the countless ways gratitude helps our mental, physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. I am working on a project to understand gratitude and what it truly means to you, as well as what you perceive as challenges to a practice of gratitude.
Project Gratitude combines quantitative and qualitative research in a report and web-series to explore the role of gratitude in our lives.
