Robert A. Emmons, a leading scientific expert on the science of gratitude, found that gratitude can lower blood pressure, improve immune function, and contribute to a better sleep. Emmons’ studies also showed that gratitude can lessen depression, anxiety and substance abuse disorders, and it can also help prevent suicide. Next time you’re sitting in the car with a loved one or baby (!) think about one thing that you are grateful for today and experience the many benefits of practicing gratitude.
