The Gratitude Effect — HIPAA Vault

3 Reasons to Celebrate a Perpetual Thanksgiving

1. A Renewed Motivation to Serve

2. A Healthier Outlook

  • Increased life span
  • Lower rates of depression
  • Lower levels of distress and pain
  • Greater resistance to illnesses
  • Better psychological and physical well-being
  • Better cardiovascular health; reduced risk of death from cardiovascular disease/stroke
  • Reduced risk of death from cancer
  • Reduced risk of death from respiratory conditions
  • Reduced risk of death from infections
  • Better coping skills during hardships and times of stress
  • The disclosure of personal information may cause intrinsic harm, simply because that private information is known by others.
  • Another potential danger is economic harm. Individuals could lose their job, health insurance, or housing if the wrong type of information becomes public knowledge.
  • Individuals could also experience social or psychological harm. For example, the disclosure that an individual is infected with HIV or another type of sexually transmitted infection can cause social isolation and/or other psychologically harmful results.
  • Finally, security breaches could put individuals in danger of identity theft.
