Is there a link between gratitude and happiness?
« on: January 19, 2014, 03:16:49 PM »
Research suggests that people who feel gratitude benefit in the following ways,
1) happier  2)less depressed   3) less stressed    4)more satisfied with their with their lives and social relationships     5)aware of their purpose in life    6) self confident     7)positive   8)able to cope with difficulties in a positive way.    9)more likely to seek support from other people  and  10)able to learn and grow from their experiences.

It is easy to understand how gratitude is responsible for the positive and healthy characteristics of people who we feel it.We spend so much time looking for things to make us happy -and all we really have to do is appreciate what is all around us each and everyday.

When we live in the state of gratitude, there will be much happiness in our lives. One who is grateful will experience much happiness while one who is ungrateful will not experience happiness.  Whatever your situation or circumstances, commit to living your life in a state of gratitude. As you do this, witness the magic that begins to take place in your life.
