There’s a lot of “getting” in “Thanksgiving”!

In a study, the author of the book Authentic Happiness asked 411 people to perform one of six tasks that supposedly would make them feel an elevated sense of well-being. Among the tasks was one that required writing a letter of thanks to someone who had been especially kind to the writer, but who had never received his or her expressed gratitude. Part two of the assignment was to deliver that letter in person and stay while they read it silently. Seligman found that of all the positive tasks assigned, the gratitude option delivered the highest boost to the happiness of study participants and the most significant reduction in symptoms of depression. What’s more, the subjects who chose the gratitude task were still enjoying the benefits after one-week and one-month follow-ups. (Here are 10 secrets from the happiest countries on earth.)  Could you replicate these findings in your own life?  Give it a try.
