In a nutshell, the word gratitude is defined as “the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness”. Gratitude is different from ‘appreciation’ by itself in that the appreciation is “recognition of the good qualities of someone or something”. Gratitude is both appreciation and thankfulness. Research on the positive effects and benefits of gratitude on mental, emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing is growing. For example, gratitude has been shown to be associated with reduced physical aches and pains, improved overall health, reduced depression, improved happiness, and less incidences of PTSD when exposed to traumatic situations.
