Gratitude is Good for Your Health...

Provided by

Kathy Lynch, Pharm.D - Women's InternationalPharmacy

...at least according to Dr. Robert Emmons who has authored two books on the science of gratitude. Being thankful on a daily basis positively affects physical as well as mental health. Thankfulness connects us more deeply with others and makes us just plain happier.

During this holiday season, let us all take time to adopt an attitude of gratitude. It's a win-win situation.
