Gratitude is Good For Your Health

Dr. P. Murali Doraiswamy, an expert in brain and mind health, once said, “If [thankfulness] were a drug, it would be the world’s best-selling product with a health maintenance indication for every major organ system.”

 

I so believe that to be true. Sometime life throws you a curve that you wonder how the hell you are going to handle it. You do in a couple of ways – major stress which is so detrimental to your  health or you show gratitude for the great things you already have and you will be surprised how well you handle a difficult situation.

Wisdom of the ancient dictate that events are just that Events, some perceived to be good or bad.  It is your belief about the event that upsets you, not the fact that it happened.

Here is a few short ways to handle situations with Gratitude

 

Write thank-you notes

Give verbal praise and say “thank you” more often

Give thanks at each meal

Change your perception – Its up to you t0 handle a situation the best you can

Be mindful of your nonverbal actions – smile or a hug

Prayer and/or mindfulness meditation – Grateful for, such as a pleasant smell, a cool breeze or a lovely memory.

Nightly gratitude ritual written down – This is an excellent habit to get into 

Spend money on activities instead of things – spend money on experiences.

Embrace the idea of having “enough” –  Minimalist lifestyle

Spend more time in nature and  barefoot

Try tapping – Glad I found this article cause have not done this in months (showed in video). This is well worth watching.

 

Here is a video, not a short one but one that could affect the rest of your life in a way you never thought possible.

Poem Friday – Another Cup Of Tea In The Pot

Have not done a poem in a while
Sun on my back, that warm feeling in the winter makes me smile

I love the mornings, fresh and early to rise
Got up had my cold shower, cleaned my teeth and exercise

Took the dog for a walk down to the lake
The air so still with mist on top, natural beauty not fake

So here I am with toast marmalade and tea
A Simple pleasure, Body, Soul and me

Great Start to the day, really don’t want to move, just enjoying this lot
Well why should I, there is still another cup of tea in the pot
