How powerful is gratitude when it is used in the correct way?
Gratitude has been shown time and again in studies to have beneficial affects on your physical, mental and spiritual health. It can not only help you feel better, but it can do so without the side effects that come along with many drugs!
*Disclosure - I am NOT telling you to stop taking an medication. This is simply to show that gratitude can be a powerful practice. Always consult your medical professional.
In studies it has been shown that a gratitude practice can have the same effects as some pharmaceuticals as well as exercise. AND the effects seem to be longer lasting than those of some pharmaceuticals and exercise. Meaning that a short gratitude practice can have long lasting effects.
Today think of a recent time when someone made you feel grateful. Replay the moment and FEEL the emotions your felt then.
