Have you ever considered how being thankful can influence your health?
If you really stop and think about it, it makes sense.
We’ve all been around the person who complains all the time, views every situation with a glass is half-empty approach, or just has a flat low-energy negative personality.
You are probably picturing the face of someone now and immediately your posture sags.
How different do you feel when someone smiles in your direction, shares an encouraging word, or gives you a thumbs-up?
How thankful are you when the constant complainer is replaced by the cheery sunshine person with a bubbly personality?
Gratitude is a lot like that. The more thankful you are, the happier you are.
According to Harvard Health [https://www.health.harvard.edu/healthbeat/giving-thanks-can-make-you-happier], “gratitude is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness. Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships.”
How cool is that?
