Grateful people are happier, less depressed, less stressed, and more satisfied with their lives. Grateful people also have higher levels of control of their environments, personal growth, purpose in life, and self acceptance. Grateful people have more positive ways of coping with the difficulties they experience in life.
The longest lasting effects are caused by the act of writing “gratitude journals” every day, coupled with reviewing what you are grateful for, at the beginning of each day.

GRATITUDE - November 10, 2012
I AM GRATEFUL FOR HAVING ACCESS TO LISTEN TO WORLD CLASS VIOLINISTS.
The Mondavi Center in Davis is home to world class music and tonight Lise and I got the opportunity to listen to Joshua Bell perform. Absolutely amazing. I am thankful for the experience.
