The Power of Gratitude

We all hear enough negative news.  We hear it on the news, we listen to complaints from our friends and family members, and sometimes we feel negativity in our own life.  What if we worked every day to be more positive?  What would be the outcome?  Researchers such as Amit Sood state that by making an effort every day to be grateful and compassionate towards others we are actually building our higher cortisol brain functions which will result in greater peace and joy in our lives.  By focusing on the positive and being grateful for what we have, we reduce the power of fear which can cripple our behavior and immobilize us.  Try  today to list 5 things you are grateful for.  Focus on what you have instead of what you don’t have.  Be grateful for the moment you are alive and for the little things that you take for granted. Be appreciative of the mundane and seek to find novelty in the ordinary.  Find joy in your journey.
Many blessings sent your way.
