Frequently saying thanks can lead to feeling healthier and happier. Gratitude has been shown to instill feelings of hope, inspiration and foregiveness.
Pausing to appreiciate ALL things, big and small, is beneficial in more ways than one. Those who show gratitude report being healthier and one study found those who wrote down what they were grateful for each week exercised more, had fewer health complaints and generally felt better about theirlives. Other reserach indicates those who journalled their gratitude slept better.
Counting one’s blessings can also strengthen relationships with those we are thankful for. In fact, experts say being thankful is a key part of maintaining intimate relationships.
Make gratitude a daily habit, whether it’s sending a thank-you note or simply pausing to say a quiet thanks! It benefits YOU too 🙂
