And if you needed further incentive to appreciate what you have: it's good for your health.
Researchers have found that "the practice of gratitude can have dramatic and lasting effects in a person’s life,” says Robert A. Emmons, professor of psychology at UC Davis. “It can lower blood pressure, improve immune function and facilitate more efficient sleep.”
Not to mention, according to a University of Kentucky study, grateful people are just nicer. And they're less aggressive. The same study found that you can ignite that gratitude by writing a letter focusing on all the blessings in your life. What are you grateful for? Share your gratitude with the following card.
