“Thousands of years of literature talk about the benefits of cultivating gratefulness as a virtue,” says Dr. Robert Emmons, a University of California, Davis psychology professor.
Research shows that those who practice gratitude are more likely to eat a healthy diet often, engage in regular exercise, have healthier immune systems, and manage stress better.
Because stress is responsible for up to 90% of medical doctors visits, having a thankful outlook can help keep you well.
How to show thankfulness? With these simple, effective actions. Foster a thankful attitude by regularly writing down all that you’re thankful for; be mindful of what you have instead of comparing yourself to others; and have a positive mindset.
Having a glass-half-full outlook could improve your health and your life!
