GIVING and Giving “Thanks”


Thanks Giving is coming next week. The University of California, Berkeley did many studies on Giving, even just giving “Thanks”. They reported that, yes, “thank you” is an essential, everyday part of family dinners, trips to the store, business deals, and political negotiations. That might be why so many people have dismissed gratitude as simple, obvious, and unworthy of serious attention.

But that’s starting to change. Recently scientists have begun to chart a course of research aimed at understanding gratitude and the circumstances in which it flourishes or diminishes. They’re finding that people who practice gratitude consistently report a host of benefits:
•Stronger immune systems and lower blood pressure;
•Higher levels of positive emotions;
•More joy, optimism, and happiness;
•Acting with more generosity and compassion;
•Feeling less lonely and isolated.
