Did you know that practicing gratitude
can actually improve your brain function and overall physical and
emotional well-being? Well, it’s true. 

Brain scans and
research conducted by renown psychiatrist, Dr. Daniel Amen showed a
significant improvement in brain function following the practice of
gratitude. For years now, spiritual leaders and psychologists have
claimed that a positive attitude can help heal our lives, but now we
know that the simple act of gratitude can actually improve our
physical and emotional well-being. And it’s free! 

Some of
the distinct benefits of a daily dose of gratitude include:

  • Increased joy in the simple things in life.
  • Ability to
    recover quickly from life’s setbacks and disappointments.
  • Improved
    relationships – people prefer to be around people who are grateful.
  • Greater physical stamina and energy.
  • Increased
    happiness and acceptance.
  • Stronger, healthier immune system.

Here’s a Blessing for today:

Morning Prayer

Infinite God, of life, goodness, and generous
love, I dedicate my
heart, my life, to you.
Help me to cherish all human life,
do the good you want me to do.

generous love,
and a blessing to everyone I see.
May your
goodness be fully in us, and in all that we
think, and say and do.

Peace and Blessings!
