It's not just for Oprah devotees. Recent studies show that practicing gratitude can positively impact your life - and researchers believe it may help us break bad habits.
Gratitude is about focusing on other people, says Dr. Jo-Ann Tsang, a psychology professor at Baylor University, who led a study which will appear in the July 2014 issue of the journal Personality and Individual Differences.
“Previous research that we and others have done finds that people are motivated to help people that help them--and to help others as well. We’re social creatures, and so focusing on others in a positive way is good for our health,” Tsang said in a statement.
