When was the last time you stopped to really acknowledge the things you’re thankful for? There’s a whole host of reasons why we should make gratitude a daily practice – research has shown that being thankful confers a whole host of health benefits…

1. Grateful teens are happier, according to a study presented at the annual meeting of the American Psychological Association this year. Researchers also found that teens who are grateful – in the study, defined as having a positive outlook on life – are more well-behaved at school and more hopeful than their less-grateful peers. 2. Being constantly mindful of all the things you have to be thankful for can boost your well-being, research suggests. In a series of experiments detailed in a 2003 study in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, daily exercise practices and listing off all the things you are thankful for are linked with a brighter outlook on life and a greater sense of positivity. 3. Grateful high-schoolers have higher GPAs – as well as better social integration and satisfaction with life – than their not-grateful counterparts, according to a 2010 study in the Journal of Happiness Studies. 4. Gratitude could also boost pro-social behaviors, such as helping other people who have problems or lending emotional support to another person. 5. Writing down what you’re thankful for as you drift off to sleep can help you get better ZZs, according to a study in the journal Applied Psychology: Health and Well-Being. 6. Being thankful for the little things your partner does could make your relationship stronger, according to a study in the journal Personal Relationships. The Telegraph reported on the study, which showed that journaling about the thoughtful things your partner did was linked with a beneficial outcome on the relationship. 7. A 1995 study in the American Journal of Cardiology showed that appreciation and positive emotions are linked with changes in heart rate variability. 8. Athletes are less likely to burn out and more likely to experience high life satisfaction and team satisfaction when they are grateful, according to a 2008 study in the journal Social Indicators Research of high-schoolers. 9. Gratefulness is linked with optimism, which in turn is linked with better immune health, WebMD reported. 10. And WebMD reported that negative events can boost gratitude, and that gratitude can help to boost feelings of belonging and decrease feelings of stress. Infinite Blessings!
