I found this great blog post on CNN today about how being thankful can actually be good for your health.
“Doctors say giving thanks, taking the time to notice positive things in your life is not only good for your psyche but it?s good for your body. University of California at Davis researchers found that practicing gratitude can lower your blood pressure and make you feel less hostile. Grateful people are less angry, less negative and usually look for the cup half full. Studies by Cornell University researchers have shown that those who are thankful appear to have lower risks of developing phobias, alcoholism, even depression. They even have stronger immune systems.”
