Let’s go on a 12 day gratitude journey! Here, we will talk about the incredible benefits for both the body and mind of being grateful.
Our first benefit is Gratitude will boost your immune system. That’s right! Who couldn’t use a boost in their immune system with this whole pandemic going on. Medical studies now show that gratitude increases our red blood cell counts, which significantly improves our health. The studies were conducted at the University of Utah and Kentucky found that people who practice Gratitude had more disease fighting cells. And, people who kept a gratitude journal had stress hormone levels that were 23% less. That’s significant. Gratitude is a natural stress detox for the body and the mind.
When we think about what we are grateful for, the parasympathetic or calming nervous system is activated. This is our rest and restore system. It allows our immune system to function at its fullest potential. It also gets us out of that fight or flight mode. Fight or flight is the stress mode that causes so much damage.
