How Daily Gratitude Impacts Your Health

Happy Thanksgiving! In honor of our American holiday in the US, I’d like to again share with you the significant health benefits gratitude affords.

The simple act of counting your blessings can have a powerful impact on your health and well-being.  If you see your life through the lens of gratitude, it changes your cellular functioning by not only relieving it of the harmful impact ongoing stress has, which is the leading cause of chronic disease.  More importantly, it promotes the release of hormones and biochemicals, activates health inducing genes and stimulates brain pathways that create and sustain a healthier environment that supports and optimizes your body!

In the midst of your hectic holiday season, I encourage you to take a few minutes each and count your blessings.  It will bring greater meaning and peace to your life, and set you on the path of creating an enduring habit that will assist you in creating the good health you desire and deserve!
