Gratitude Works! by Robert A. Emmons

“Grateful people — those who perceive gratitude as a permanent trait rather than a temporary state of mind — have an edge on the not-so-grateful when it comes to health. Grateful people take better care of themselves and engage in more protective health behaviors like regular exercise, a healthy diet, regular physical examinations…” –Dr. Robert A. Emmons of the University of California, Davis
