10 Amazing Statistics to Celebrate National Gratitude Month

November is National Gratitude Month

Increasing the amount of gratitude in our daily lives is a wonderful way to improve mental and physical health, job satisfaction, and overall happiness. National Gratitude Month reminds us that kindness can be one of the most powerful tools out there for building social bonds and achieving success, with incredible statistics to back it up.

There is a strong correlation between increased feelings of happiness and self-worth and giving or receiving gratitude, so much so that one is practically a function of the other. We are happy because we are grateful, not the other way around.

The power of sincere gratitude is easily underrated since it costs nothing to give and its effects can seem invisible, but any gesture of appreciation is empty without it. It doesn’t matter who you are – if everyone took a minute to express gratitude to an acquaintance or colleague, even just once per day, the positive benefits would still be enormous.

Sometimes it can be extra-difficult to find something to be grateful about, especially after a not-so-good day (or year!). That’s why increasing the amount of gratitude in our daily lives can be so beneficial to so many arenas of life. We so often get wrapped up in the anxiety of external events that we lose sight of the things we still have to be thankful for. Decency is due for big comeback, and it starts with being grateful.
