Gratitude is a popular buzzword in November and December. But after the Thanksgiving turkey has been carved and eaten and the holiday gifts exchanged and opened, we often forget all those things we claimed to be grateful for. Did you know that gratitude is, literally and figuratively, good for your health and wellbeing -- if you continue to acknowledge it every day of the year?
Studies suggest that a positive attitude, and most importantly, actually PRACTICING gratitude, are good for body, mind, and spirit. Being grateful can lower your blood pressure, improve your sleep, enhance relationships, bring you joy, and help fight back against the stress and anxiety common in our go-go-go daily lives.
For more on how gratitude increases personal and professional success, check out my recent post on Everyday Power Blog. If it's whole-body and whole-being wellness you're seeking, read more on SharpHeels.
I challenge you to wake up each and every day and think first about one single thing you're grateful for. It can be as simple as a cup of coffee or the sun shining through your bedroom window. What a great practice to kick off the New Year -- you can make 2017 your healthiest yet!
