Express Gratitude Together Before Family Meals

Today’s fantastic family finance article is:

Plate with Thank You

Saying grace together before each family meal is a very simple way of consistently expressing gratitude. Why bother? More gratitude correlates to higher grades, more life satisfaction, more social integration, less depression, less envy, and (in our opinion) less entitlement. (Find more info on the benefits of gratitude here.) Need a non-religious grace ritual? Try this: hold hands before digging in, and simply say: “For what we are about to receive, may we be truly thankful.” That’s it. Short and sweet.
