To sum it up, the good feeling we experience when we engage in the practice of gratitude can be related to how our body functions.
What are the benefits?
- The brain calms down.
- The heart pumps more efficiently.
- Our lungs breathe more easily.
- We tend to be more active increasing our chances of slimming down.
- Our immunity response is strengthened.
And then there are Psychological Benefits too. Check out the diagram.
Highlights from my Gratitude Journal for this week:
I am grateful for:
Monday – good neighbours, who make my little part of the world feel safe and secure
Tuesday (which was launch day) – friends who support me through formatting glitches and remind me there’s a real world out there that’s still turning
Saturday ~ for hitting #9 in SciFi and Fantasy New Releases~ for ten wonderful early reviews from my new release, A Viking Ghost for Valentine’s Day ~ for my husband’s knowledge of computers, which once again bailed me out of trouble (I had downloaded an app wrong and jammed my machine.)
How Grateful I am for Readers
I love my readers. They make my writing world spin. I can’t thank you enough for being there, reading my stuff and encouraging me.
