A Little Gratitude Goes A Long Way

Holidays of gratitude like Thanksgiving give us more than just another opportunity to demonstrate our appreciation for things.

Modern science has proven that gratitude can improve your quality of life and help you live longer. We all know that stress can have detrimental effects on our health. However, it has now been shown that gratitude can help reduce our stress levels!

Dr. Robert Emmons, University of California Davis psychology professor and gratitude researcher, says that “feelings of thankfulness have tremendous positive value in helping people cope with daily problems."

Studies show that people with positives attitudes produce more protective blood cells than those who are pessimistic, thus they have healthier immune systems. This means grateful people recuperate more quickly after illnesses, and they become sick less often.

So, since it seems that expressing gratitude really does have health rewards, here are four simple steps to becoming more grateful:

  • Make a gratitude journal and make regular entries in it as a way of reminding yourself what you have to be thankful for.
  • Write a list of the assets in your life and see if you take any for granted. This way, you stay mindful of your blessings.
  • Monitor your self-talk and communicate better with yourself, so you can maintain a level head and good attitude in times of duress.
  • Choose a better way to deal with adverse situations – after all, you feel differently if you look at WHO’S in the diaper than if you look at WHAT’S in it.

Get into the habit of noticing the good things in your life and appreciating them – not only does it make you nicer to be around, it could increase your longevity and improve your life.

We are grateful for the opportunity to serve our community and help you and your loved ones live healthier lives. Happy  Thanksgiving!

Testimonials

I found Dr. Morrone to be very pleasant and I find her approach refreshing. Other chiropractors I have visited basically give you an adjustment without discussing the neurological connections. Looking forward to working with her and also to see how she may be able to help my daughter.
