Women more likely to count their blessings

NINE out of 10 people count their blessings, reveals a British YouGov survey. But women are more likely to than men.

More than half said being thankful for family and partners was their top blessing followed by health.

Apparently, women are far more likely than men to count their blessings once a week or more often; 84 per cent of women regularly acknowledge the good things in their lives, compared to 67 per cent of men.

The research also shows that the proportion counting their blessings every day increases with age, with one third of those aged 55+ counting their blessings every day, compared to one in six of those aged 18-24. Women tend to feel more tired, depressed and overweight than men in January but on the other hand women are far more likely than men to count their blessings once a week or more often.
