Each week the Adelphi Center for Health Innovation (CHI) finds new and interesting ways to expand our understanding of health and wellness through articles posted on the CHI Think About It Blog. The posts range from information regarding CHI’s many health initiatives to general health advice from Adelphi faculty, alumni and staff as well as other members of the Adelphi community.

In this week’s post, Jessie Klein, Ph.D., associate professor of sociology and director of the Creating Compassionate Communities (CCC) program, discusses the importance of gratitude with Carson Quinn of HealthZette.

Studies show that being thankful can improve your relationships, your health and your success—including your grades. Dr. Klein describes how she helps students develop greater compassion through gratitude.

Being more grateful is a wonderful goal for the new year. See Dr. Klein’s advice for adopting an attitude of gratitude
