The present research aims at understanding whether gratitude and life satisfaction are related in any way associated among adults. Very few studies are reported on gratitude and life satisfaction among young adults all over the world and especially during this COVID-19 pandemic understanding their life satisfaction and gratitude and exploring the relation among these variables are important. A correlational research design was used comprising a sample, selected through purposive techniques, of 110 participants between the age of 18 to 25, with 55 males and 55 females. The results showed a significant difference (p<0.01.) in gratitude and life satisfaction among males and females. On the measure of gratitude, the results suggested a higher gratitude level in women (x =32.09) than in men (x =27.17). However, on the measure of life satisfaction, results indicate a higher level of life satisfaction among men (x =27.57) than women (x =24.617). The findings revealed significant positive relationship (p<0.01.) between gratitude and life satisfaction among the population.
