Gratitude is good for us. Research has found that gratitude is associated with a variety of positive reactions, including greater enthusiasm, energy and optimism. Every night, before bed, list three things you’re grateful for that day. You might be grateful to your body for enduring a stressful day. You might be grateful to your partner for giving you a hug. You might be grateful that you ate a nourishing meal or had a few minutes to meditate. Nothing is too small to be thankful for. Counting your blessings is also a great way to communicate and connect with others. Talk to your family or friends about what they’re grateful for.
