“Gratitude can transform common days into Thanksgivings.” –William Arthur Ward
Happy Thanksgiving! The big day is here. Whether you’re traveling out of town or hosting the main event, all the planning and to do lists can get some of the most positive people in life feeling stressed out and overwhelmed. Wouldn’t it be nice if the solution to our stress was as simple as feeling thankful for the good things in our lives? Actually, it really is that simple and the key lies in our gratitude.
In his recent research, Robert Emmons, Professor of psychology at the University of California at Davis, found that those who adopted an “attitude of gratitude” as a permanent state of mind experienced many health benefits. The study showed that grateful people were more likely to get regular exercise and eat a healthier diet; have improved mental alertness, cope better with stress and daily challenges, feel more optimistic and happy, have stronger immune systems and maintain a brighter view of the future.
With benefits like these, who wouldn’t want to adopt an attitude of gratitude right away?
