Gratitude is the Attitude
I only have one quote on my dream board and that is Gratitude is the Attitude. I have always been extremely positive my entire life and one of the reasons is that I am just very thankful for everything I have. My travels throughout the world have enabled me to get a much better perspective on things.
The video posted below is an interview with Diane Gillan who has had some amazing results with practicing gratitude. Make sure you watch that video to see her incredible health benefits.
Robert Emmons, the world's leading scientific expert on gratitude, reveals why gratitude is good for our bodies, our minds, and our relationships. Here are a few of the benefits if you keep a gratitude journal:
Physical • Stronger immune systems • Less bothered by aches and pains • Lower blood pressure • Exercise more and take better care of their health • Sleep longer and feel more refreshed upon waking
Psychological • Higher levels of positive emotions • More alert, alive, and awake • More joy and pleasure • More optimism and happiness
Social • More helpful, generous, and compassionate • More forgiving • More outgoing • Feel less lonely and isolated.
This excerpt is taken from this site which is a TED talk on gratitude worth watching.
“The one thing all humans have in common is that each of us wants to be happy, says Brother David Steindl-Rast, a monk and interfaith scholar. And happiness, he suggests, is born from gratitude. An inspiring lesson in slowing down, looking where you’re going, and above all, being grateful.” Link here.
Challenge to you is to do at least one of these:
Get a gratitude journal that you write in daily.
Have a gratitude partner who you message every day with your top 5 things.
Have a FB group where everyone reports into every day what they are grateful for.
