Remember to Say Thank You as Grateful People Live Longer

It turns out that giving thanks is good for your health. Research suggests that gratitude can improve your psychological, emotional and physical well-being.

Feelings of gratitude can lead to greater energy, optimism, social connections and happiness, according to a decade’s worth of studies. Grateful people are also less likely to be depressed, envious, greedy or alcoholics. They earn more, sleep better, exercise more regularly and have greater resistance to infections.

According to the Wall Street Journal:

“... [G]ratitude brings similar benefits in children and adolescents. Kids who feel and act grateful tend to be less materialistic, get better grades, set higher goals, complain of fewer headaches and stomach aches and feel more satisfied with their friends, families and schools than those who don't, studies show.”
