“If the only prayer you ever say in your life is ‘thank you,’ it will be enough.” Meister Eckhart
The data is in – all this giving thanks stuff? It’s good for you. There is science to prove it. Gratitude is not just some “religious” practice. It turns out that intentionally taking time to count your blessings and focus on the positive in your life is good not just for your spirit, but also for your body.
Scientists have found that blood pressure goes down and hearts get healthier when people practice the act of gratitude. You can listen or read the NPR story.
Aren’t you glad you know that? Now you have another thing to be grateful for.
I give thanks. Over and over. For blessings, large and small.
