There are several scientific studies that show that feeling or showing an appreciation of kindness or thankfulness is associated with greater happiness, more positive emotions, and improved health.
According to two psychologists, Dr. Robert A. Emmons of the University of California, Davis and Dr. Michael E. McCullough of the University of Miami, focusing on what one is grateful for can make a significant difference in you emotional and physical state. In one study they asked all participants to write a few sentences each week focusing on specific topics. One group wrote about things they were grateful for that had occurred during the week, a second group wrote about daily irritations or things that had displeased them, and the third wrote about events that had affected them (with no emphasis on them being positive or negative). After 10 weeks those who wrote about gratitude were more optimistic and felt better about their lives. Surprisingly, they also exercised more and had fewer visits to physicians than those who focused on sources of aggravation.
