10. More Energy
There is no denying that when you feel good about your life and optimistic for the future, you will have more energy to tackle your day, and to do it with a smile. We all know the I’m awesome, today is going to be a great day, I’m going to work hard and kick a little butt while I’m at it, feeling.

Plus, when you have energy you tend to exercise more, and working out releases endorphins that make you even happier. Let’s break it down: Gratitude → Energy → Exercise → Happiness. The end.
