Psychology Professor Robert Emmons of the University of California-Davis studies the health benefits of gratitude. He says people who remember to give thanks every day feel better, have more energy, are better liked and are more successful. So even if Thanksgiving gets a little stressful with family, don't forget to count your blessings.
