People who are chronically hostile and angry have higher levels of blood cholesterol and blood pressure, which are two major risk factors for Chronic Heart Disease and early death……do you need more motivation to be happy, joyful and grateful for all your blessings? Thought not! LOL
They say an apple a day will keep the Dr away…..well maybe with that apple you need a gratitude affirmation! What do you think? Every morning when you awaken, before you put your feet on the ground, take a look around the room and whatever your eyes come upon say “thank you” for it. When I wake in the morning I usually say “thank you” to God for allowing me to have another day in which to get it right! I am on a spiritual…self-development journey and that is all I can ask each and everyday. Some days I say more, usually I say a lot more….but at the very least I make sure that I thank Him for another day.
Make each day a day of gratitude and if that sounds like too much for you then maybe you just need to take a minute each day to think of someone else….that usually is all a person needs to wake up to all of their blessings!
Try it and see what I mean…..
I for one am grateful to have a blog where I can come and write what ever I am thinking…… Thank you!
