With gratitude, you acknowledge the goodness in your life. In positive psychology research, gratitude is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness. Hundreds of studies have documented the social, physical, and psychological benefits of gratitude.
Emma Seppala, Associate Director at the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education at Stanford University, lists many benefits to gratitude practice. Benefits such as:
protection from stress and negativity
improved social intelligence
and even improved health
I have attached some activities for children to practice gratitude. Remember it takes a lot of practice!
