Gratitude

Updated: Jan 29

“When I started counting my blessings, and living in gratitude, my whole life turned around.”—

Willie Nelson


Practicing Gratitude is one of the most powerful weapons to challenge negative thinking and it helps you clarify what you value most.


The words we speak to ourselves via our “self-talk” or thoughts are profoundly powerful, dramatically affecting our health and well-being. Our mind and body responds to our thoughts, emotions, and beliefs.


Every time we have a thought our brain releases chemicals either for good or harm. If we are constantly thinking negative thoughts, our brain will stimulate the production of chemicals that will result in negative body symptoms and illness. Negative thoughts also diminish the activity of our higher brain centers that govern judgment, memory, and learning.


Conversely, if we are thinking positive thoughts of gratitude, hope, love, and joyful anticipation; better health and happiness will be created.


Moment by moment you are changing the structure of your brain and the function of your body through your thinking. We are not helpless victims of our circumstances or our genetic predispositions. We have the power by our very thoughts to to change the way we look and feel.


Our mental response to the circumstances of our life has an enormous impact on our mental and physical health.
