 Teens Who Count Their Blessings Have Better Emotional Health

It is important to help teenagers count their blessings and feel contented for all that they have, as such positive feelings go a long way in promoting sound emotional health.

Researchers said that the very act of expressing gratitude for what one has, instills a positive attitude towards life and uplifts the happiness quotient.

This optimistic attitude gives teenagers hope of a bright future and boosts academic performance. Not only that, it improves their self-esteem and keeps depression at bay.

"Gratefulness allows us to understand what matters most to us and translate that to a broader goal," researchers said.

Parents have an important role to play in helping teens understand the importance of satisfaction and contentment in life and the best way to instill this attitude in children is to lead by example.
