Have you ever considered how your attitude influences your health?
Published research over the past decade has pointed towards the positive effect gratitude has on a persons physical and emotional wellbeing.
Taking time each day to list just a few things you are grateful for seems to have a profound impact on a persons attitudes, emotions and physical health.
To begin, it might be simplest to choose the obvious things you can be grateful for. As you grow with practice in this area you may choose to find gratitude in more challenging and frustrating areas of your life and see how your approach to them changes.
Finding how to be grateful in these challenging areas can give you an enlightened perspective turning what seems to be a curse or burden into a blessing and joy.
If health is one of the most important things in life, spending a few minutes each day practicing gratitude may be a wise investment.
