Family. Friends. Health. A pet. A great pair of shoes. Thanksgiving is upon us, and it's time to think about all the things that make us feel warm and fuzzy inside.

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.
