Healthy Gratitude

gratitude-quotesThanksgiving 2013 may be over, but that’s no reason to stop giving thanks or showing gratitude.

Being grateful, it turns out, is actually proven to be good for your health.  Harvard Medical School reports:  “In positive psychology research, gratitude is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness. Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships. . . gratitude also helps people connect to something larger than themselves as individuals — whether to other people, nature, or a higher power.”

Clearly there are many benefits to having a grateful heart…we don’t take those lightly.  Being grateful is a lesson your chums continue to learn and want to encourage all those we know to acknowledge and express gratitude everyday.

Earlier this year we reported to you about a wonderful book we read entitled A Simple Act of GratitudeHow Learning To Say Thank You Changed My Life  by John Kralik.

If you haven’t read it yet, get yourself a copy and pick up an extra one for someone you love.  It would make a truly wonderful Christmas or Hanukkah gift.

Expressing gratitude every day can only lead to a life very rich with love and joy….a very abundant life indeed!
