The Science

Saying thanks improves your well-being

Truth is, we're not wired to be naturally grateful. It requires practice. According Dr. Robert Emmons, author of "Thanks! How Practicing Gratitude Can Make You Happier" it takes 3 steps to be good at giving gratitude: recognizing what we’re grateful for, acknowledging it, and appreciating it.

The benefits of practicing gratitude have been well researched by many. It can strengthen relationships, improves health, reduces stress, and, in general, makes us happier. (Not bad for a couple of minutes a day).
