“Does ‘Counting Our Blessings’ Really Help?”


“Does ‘Counting Our Blessings’ Really Help?” is a report from Cognitive Daily sharing research that shows having students regularly list what they are grateful for helps them develop a more positive outlook.

Doing it daily generated the greatest benefit, but it appears that doing it weekly helped, too.

I don’t plan on trying this with my students anywhere that number of times, but it sounds like a good reflective question to ask now and then.
