We’ve all heard that Gratitude makes you a happier person, but research is showing it does a great deal more than that!
1. Grateful People Feel Less Lonely
The more gratitude you feel, the less loneliness you experience, according to an April 2015 study in Social Behavior and Personality. People who focus on gratitude tend to have a more positive outlook and perceive having more positive experiences overall. This reduces their sense of loneliness. Also, grateful people tend to receive more social support, so they are literally less alone.
