Engaging in activities that are gratifying and experiencing a state of gratitude have multiple physical and mental-emotional benefits. Further, expressing gratitude to others has benefits to all parties in the exchange.

This Lab provides practical steps that will lead you to experience more gratitude in your life, explores the distinction between gratification and pleasure, and poses the question: Is there an association between our experience of gratitude and our experience of our relationships? Is it one we may learn from and build on?
