An Attitude of Gratitude

Research has shown that people who practice the art of being grateful for the good things in their lives are generally healthier (mentally, emotionally, and physically) than those who only focus on the negatives.

Folks who continually thank God for both the big & small things suffer less from stress, depression, and heart problems like high blood pressure.

These benefits happen because those who live grateful lives are usually optimistic, and more likely to help other people, which produces the extremely positive feelings of happiness and fulfillment.

All these combine to enable those with an "attitude of gratitude" to live positive, meaningful, healthy, and longer lives!
