The Power of Gratitude
November 2016

This month, we celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday.  John Tierney, in an article for the New York times, once referred to Thanksgiving as "the most psychologically correct holiday of the year."

Gratitude is a powerful and healing force.  According to an article, " What a Grateful Brain Looks Like" (published on Mindful.org), " Evidence is mounting that gratitude makes a powerful impact on our bodies, including our immune and cardiovascular health."

Practicing gratitude can transform us - on all levels. 

Dr. Wayne Dyer offered us this simple, yet profound gratitude practice:  

Life is filled with challenges and stress. None of us are immune.  We all have more on our plates than we can comfortably handle, more often than not.  It is easy to focus on what's wrong and what is weighing us down.

To simply pause and take a moment to focus on what we are grateful for, and what we can appreciate, shifts our energy and attention. 

According to the Expanding the Science and Practice of Gratitude Project, some of the benefits of practicing Gratitude on a regular basis include:
  • Stronger immune systems
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Higher levels of positive emotions
  • More joy, optimism, and happiness
  • Acting with more generosity and compassion
  • Feeling less lonely and isolated
This project provides some fantastic resources on gratitude and how to incorporate it as a practice in every day life, including this list of books on gratitude.

As the Thanksgiving holiday approaches, it is a perfect time to reflect on how the practice of gratitude can enhance our health and our lives.
