Colleen Delaney, Ph.D., RN, AHN-BC, associate professor at the University of Connecticut School of Nursing, firmly believes there is a correlation between spirituality and gratitude.

"Focusing on nature is another way of expressing gratitude," she says, explaining that this practice roots us in the present.
