If you scored 10-26:

Your reaction indicates you must try to be more thankful. There are at least two ways to do this. First, focus your attention more frequently on what you do have over what you don’t. Second, try to compare your situation in life to the lives of others who have less than you, and remember how much more difficult your life could be in those situations. Studies show that practicing gratitude promotes positive emotions, better health, stronger relationships, and greater satisfaction in life. If you want to practice gratitude you can begin with a few simple exercises and small steps:

  • Write down three things you are grateful for every day

  • Imagine a different life, where the many things you currently have, exist, but do not belong to you. This can promote gratitude for what you presently do possess.
