Introduction

It’s no secret that living a life of gratitude is generally considered to be of great benefit. Counting your blessings and naming them one by one is not only a beautiful hymn, it’s also considered by many to be the optimal way to live. And more recently, scientists have been able to prove that gratitude has incredible benefits to both our mind and our body. Here is a curated list of the top ten benefits of gratitude from one online author; Gratitude has lasting positive effects on the brain. Gratitude boosts the immune system. Gratitude reduces stress, anxiety, and depression. Gratitude promotes optimism and positivity. Gratitude helps create and strengthen relationships. Gratitude reduces chronic pain. Gratitude improves overall sleep. Gratitude keeps us grounded in reality. Gratitude promotes exercise and healthy habits. Gratitude improves our overall self-esteem.

This is just one author's list, it actually could continue on and on as new studies present new findings about the benefits of living a grateful life.

But it’s all worth it in the end, to live a grateful and empowered life.
