A Study in Gratitude

The University of California at Davis conducted a study on the effects of gratitude. The researchers were able to actually quantify what happens when people are grateful. Shifts in overall attitude included being:
  • more optimistic
  • more apt to help others
  • more joyful
  • genuinely healthier
Related studies found that grateful people are more resilient, less stressed, and are better strategic thinkers.

It is believed, too, that grateful people recovered faster from trauma. The common denominator? All believed in the power of their mind to find relevance in their situation and to make something better come of it.

Adopt an attitude of gratitude.

Have a joyful day everyone. And remember to live a flourishing life.
