“If we do not feel grateful for what we already have, what makes us think we’d be happy with more?”

In the realm of positive psychology, psychologists have discovered the benefits of gratitude in one’s health. A 2012 study published in “Personality and Individual Differences” revealed that grateful people have lesser illnesses and body pains due to their healthy lifestyle. Besides improving the immune system, several findings also show how these people are more adept at taking care of themselves.

The physical benefits of gratitude are linked to its immense psychological effects: higher self-esteem, better coping mechanism, and optimism. Robert Emmons, Ph.D., mentioned in his study that gratitude clears the way to happiness and prevents depression. Cheerful people with high self-esteem tend to be more active and health conscious, explaining why most grateful people have vibrant physical health. Furthermore, they sleep better at night, according to a study published in “Applied Psychology: Health and Well-being.” This healthy view on life is proven to affect physical and mental health, thus explaining why grateful people live longer and happier.

Lastly, gratitude is a major ingredient in creating and maintaining happy relationships. A 2012 study by the University of Kentucky found that grateful people are more empathetic and calm. These traits are important prosocial qualities in fostering friendship. Not to mention, grateful people know how to appreciate simple gestures and give compliments.

Motivational author and speaker Zig Ziglar described gratitude as “the healthiest of all human emotions. The more you express gratitude for what you have, the more likely you will have even more to express gratitude for.”
