Can Gratitude Ease Depression?

Family, work, and the busyness of life stress can leave you feeling exhausted and take an emotional toll, especially if you are struggling with depression. A simple way to boost your mood is reflecting on graitude.

Studies show that consistent positive interactions, particularly ones that involve gratitude, increase happiness and decrease levels of depression. A great way to practice gratitude is with an exercise called “ three good things.” 

Think of three good moments or things that took place recently, and express your gratitude by writing them down, or sharing the experience with someone.
