Discover How To Be Healthier And Happier

July 10, 2012 by  

If you want to be healthier and happier, you should practice gratitude and treat it just like exercising. The more often you do it and with more intensity, the greater benefit it can have on your health.

The effects of increased thanks given to friends, family or co-workers can boost your overall heart and brain health.

A study from the University of California-Riverside shows those who express gratitude can:

  • Lower their blood pressure levels.
  • Lose more weight.
  • Quit smoking more easily.
  • Reduce feelings of depression, stress or anger.
  • Lower their risk of disorders such as alcoholism, bulimia and certain phobias.

So thank those around you on a daily basis — not just on special occasions. Your health could depend on it!

    Now this is some of the best advice for everyone. Also, prayer and meditation along with expressing gratitude to our spouses and children and friends will definitely improve our overall health.

    I practice daily,Bob…and I start out by reading personal liberty.It’s good to know that I’m
    not alone out here in the wilderness. I’d rather I could take a nice long walk,afterwards,
    but i can watch my hound ranging through the tall grass in the field instead.
    No worries here….but i do wish I saw the family more often.
