Did you hear the good news? gThankYou has learned that gratitude (yup, simply being thankful), is a key to happiness. In fact, George Mason University researchers who recently published a study on gratitude calls it “one of the essential ingredients for living a good life.”

“Accumulating evidence supports the idea that gratitude is linked to greater psychological and physical well-being helps build lasting, meaningful social relationships.” This, according to Todd Kashdan, an associate professor of psychology, who wrote the paper examining gratitude posted recently in the online Journal of Personality.

This is the Great News Bit of the Day. Talk about your potential to make a difference. So many simple acts can lead to gratitude, from simply stopping to say a heartfelt “Thanks” to putting those words in writing – hand-made cards from kids are my favorite; simple hand-written notes are often the most impactful. Successful organizations know the power of gratitude in the workpace: it’s a tool that has a motivational multiplier.  (Should be plenty of opportunities to evoke that feeling of gratitude as the spring gifting season approaches, too.)
I’d love to get more into this idea of gratitude: what it is, how to express it and why it’s seen as one of the key elements to leading a happy life. But that’s for another day.
