Definition: The state of being grateful; warm and friendly feeling toward a benefactor; kindness awakened by a favour received; thankfulness. Research has suggested that people who are more grateful have higher levels of well-being. Grateful people are happier, less depressed, less stressed, and more satisfied with their lives and relationships. They have higher levels of control of their environments, personal growth, purpose in life, and self acceptance.
