On this Thanksgiving day, we pay special attention to giving thanks. So as you take a moment and talk about the things for which you are grateful, keep in mind the benefits that come with a thankful heart.

Grateful people…

  • have more energy and optimism
  • are less bothered by life’s hassles
  • are more resilient in the face of stress
  • are healthier
  • suffer less depression than the rest of us
  • are more compassionate
  • are more likely to help others
  • are less materialistic
  • are more satisfied with life.
