Study Proves that Grateful People are Happier and Healthier. Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to our readers, have a wonderful time celebrating with your families. We came across this interesting research article which states that grateful people are happier, healthier, less envious and depressed, and more inclined to give back. That's one more reason to be thankful today. Read on for more...

"We know that grateful kids are happier [and] more satisfied with their lives," explains Hofstra University psychology assistant professor Jeffrey Froh in an article this week in The Washington Post. "They report better relationships with friends and family, higher GPAs, less materialism, less envy and less depression, along with a desire to connect to their community and to want to give back." 

That's not all. It's also believed to boost immune systems and lower blood pressure over time. In a Temple Univeristy study, patients with hypertension lowered their blood pressure just by calling a "gratitude" hotline everyday. If it's that effective on adults with health problems, imagine what announcing the good things in life at early age can do. 

What are you grateful for this thanksgiving? Leave a comment below.

    I'm amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that's equally educative
    and interesting, and without a doubt, you have hit
    the nail on the head. The issue is an issue
    that too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy I found this during my hunt for something
    concerning this.
