Practicing gratitude can yield a variety of physical and emotional benefits, including increased happiness, optimism, and determination. Being grateful can also reduce stress and improve sleep and immune functioning. By writing someone a letter of gratitude and reading it aloud to him or her, you can experience firsthand the benefits of being grateful. Studies by positive psychologist Martin Seligman have even reported that the effect of doing this just once can last for weeks!
In this exercise, you will write a letter to someone you appreciate – typically, a person who has made a difference in your life, and to whom you feel grateful. Ideally, you’ll then read your letter to the recipient to have a greater impact.
