There is a science to the state of gratitude according to studies conducted at the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley.
Their studies examined connections between gratitude and psychological well-being. Results show that grateful people tend to be happier and very satisfied with their lives.
Other studies have also found that gratitude also benefits people with medical and psychological conditions. Grateful people are less depressed and recover from traumatic circumstances better according to Psychology Today.
Starting a gratitude practice can increase happiness and positive feelings of well-being.
