Summary

How gratitude can get the life you really want...

Gratitude is your soul's superfood, but cheaper than goji berries, and twice as good for you. I like to think of it as mindfulness for cynics or the 'gateway drug' to spirituality. It's a very tangible thing you can do everyday that will shift your focus to what you have rather than pining and obsessing over what you don't have. Away from a state of lack into limitless abundance....

So what happens when we stop taking things for granted and start putting some grá* into our gratitude? When we consciously turn our heads and hearts to what we have and focus on the good? In Joyrider, television presenter and host of the podcast Thanks a Million, Angela Scanlon, presents her guide to tapping into your own natural super resource—joy.

This audiobook is an invitation to embrace the kind of gratitude that cuts through the bullshit of life to its truth, connecting us with the present and grounding us in self. When there is so much to feel anxious about, Angela shares with listeners how focusing our attention on the small, incremental positives in life can completely change it for the better.

* It means love in Irish.

Such a pleasant listen

I really loved this and I love the matter of fact approach and down to earth humour. The advice is great too. I just wish it were a little longer.

Much better narrator than writer

The writer, who also narrated the book, adds absolutely nothing to the south help cannon. It really is wildly bog standard. That said, she is an absolutely cracking narrator and she does her damnedest to sell her work. Unfortunately it really is just another rehash of the same old, same old.

I ADORED this book

I loved this book so much, a lovely light to switch my mood around.

Just ordered the physical book too to have another read. Angela's kind and warm reading style makes me feel like I'm just checking in with a friend.

Would thoroughly recommend to anyone who needs an audio hug.

Really interesting listen. Filled with Angelea's own story, which she makes so relatable and practical tips on managing growth and self reflection. A really easy, honest, funny and warm listen. Would definitely recommend. X
