Join the 30-Day Gratitude Challenge!
Science tells us that our brains can’t respond to negative and positive emotions at the same time, so the more time we spend mindfully, and authentically immersed in thinking about the things we are grateful for, the better!
Sitting in gratitude means you aren’t in stress, worry, or anger. Taking time to immerse in gratitude a few times a day won’t make life less stressful, or make you forget the thing you’re worried about… but it does have lasting benefits.
The Mayo Clinic says:
Expressing gratitude is associated with a host of mental and physical benefits. Studies have shown that feeling thankful can improve sleep, mood and immunity. Gratitude can decrease depression, anxiety, difficulties with chronic pain and risk of disease. If a pill could do this, everyone would be taking it.
How’s that for magic?
