“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you,” Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, “and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.”

Thanksgiving is a great holiday. There’s food, family, and fun. But when you’re caught up in all of the hustle and bustle that comes along with Thanksgiving it is sometimes easy to lose sight of the underlying value of the holiday, which is its ability to cultivate gratitude. There are many positive psychological benefits of expressing and actually feeling gratitude. That may seem obvious, but if you don’t consciousness practice being grateful for what you have than you can easily miss out on the benefits, which include the following:

Improve Or Expand Your Interpersonal Relationships

Not only does saying “thank you” constitute good manners, but showing appreciation can help you win new friends

Gratitude Is Good For Your Physical Health

Grateful people experience fewer aches and pains and report feeling healthier than other people, according to a 2012 study published in Personality and Individual Differences. Not surprisingly, grateful people are also more likely to take care of their health.

Gratitude Improves Your Psychological Health

Gratitude reduces a multitude of toxic emotions, from envy and resentment to frustration and regret. Practicing gratitude can also help you to become more optimistic by focusing on the good thing, both big and small, in your life rather than ruminating on the bad. 

Conclusion

Make sure to take some time to show and feel some gratitude this Thanksgiving - it's not only good for your relationships, it's also good for your health!
