Good Morning to you on this fine Saturday! I have been working hard already this morning, and I have found some things I wanted to share here today.
Of all the areas studied in the relatively young field of positive psychology, gratitude has perhaps the widest body of research. Grateful people have been shown to have greater levels of positive affect, a greater sense of belonging, and lower levels of depression and stress. Furthermore, efforts to make people more grateful have their own benefits. Gratitude is clearly an important part of a “good life”, and it therefore demands further careful research. Each of the studies profiled here has strong scientific merit, and their results should give us a sense of cautious optimism as we move forward in the study of thanks-giving.
Think about that as you live your daily lives. I practice gratitude, daily. Sometimes its not always easy, but well worth it. There is so much to be thankful for, and not just during the holidays.
Enjoy your life!!! Its worth getting happy about!
