Did you know that intentional thankfulness can improve your health?
We know that stress and worry are causes of illness and chronic disease, but sometimes we focus on this negative instead of what we can do positively to reverse or offset that.
And there are plenty of things we can do.
Just spending a few minutes a day reflecting on all of the thing we are thankful for can bring down our stress and cortisol levels.
Instead of thinking about all of the negativity in the world today, try to redirect your mind to the things that are good in your life.
And that includes the people who have helped us to become the people we are today.
Whether it’s our moms, our spouses, our kids, our friends or the people who help us at work, we all have people in our lives who support us and pour into us.
Let’s think of ways we can let them know we appreciate them! Cooking a meal, treating them to an evening out, or giving a gift are great ways to show people we love how thankful we are for them.
We can also thank our bodies by treating them well: feeding them the best foods and getting proper sleep and exercise.
So let’s take a proactive approach to combat negativity and bring a little joy into the world today by expressing gratitude for the things and the people in our lives that we appreciate.
How will you express gratitude today?
We are thankful for you!
