Spark Appreciation to Fire Up Your Well-Being

Practicing appreciation at work has many benefits related to social connection. It can help to improve our work relationships, help team members feel valued, improves morale, and leads to a more positive work culture. When we practice appreciation, we can transform our tendency to focus on the negative and instead rewire ourselves for contentment.
