“The world would be a better place if everyone lived life through a lens of gratitude.” - Nick Santonastasso
Studies show expressing gratitude regularly can lead to;
- 10% more happiness
- 15% more optimism
- 25% improvement in sleep quality
- 30% decrease in depression type thoughts
Gratitude allows you to create balance from life's difficulties and is one of the purest forms of mindfulness. However, acquiring a new habit is not a walk in the park.

Two of our core values at the Gr@titude Movement are we're better together and going deep in conversation. Tag us on Instagram @gratitudemovement.co to share your experiences with this mindful practice.
Gr@titude's mission is to end suicide forever and help one million people live life through a lens of gratitude. While our sunglasses serve as a daily reminder that we have the choice to make it a great day, it's also a catalyst to champion mental health.
For every pair of sunglasses bought we donate another pair and a list of mental health resources to someone affected by depression.
