A serving of gratitude may save the day

New York Times columnist John Tierney writes today on the life-changing effects of gratitude. It's a good read.

"The most psychologically correct holiday of the year is upon us.

"Cultivating an 'attitude of gratitude' has been linked to better health, sounder sleep, less anxiety and depression, higher long-term satisfaction with life and kinder behavior toward others, including romantic partners. A new study shows that feeling grateful makes people less likely to turn aggressive when provoked, which helps explain why so many brothers-in-law survive Thanksgiving without serious injury."
