Wow! What a year 2020 has been: global pandemic, US unrest, financial impacts across the world. We all have so much healing to do. With the US Thanksgiving Holiday around the corner we at Health Empowered You (HEY) wanted to take a deeper look at the research behind the impacts gratitude.
According to an article cited by PubMed: "At an anatomical level, it [gratitude] is related consistently with the medial prefrontal cortex and at molecular level, with the neuropeptide oxytocin. It [gratitude] has been associated with better physical and mental health parameters, both in healthy and sick populations."
HEY found many health conditions that can be improved by practicing gratitude. Below are just some of the possible conditions that can be improved with gratitude. The studies representing this information can be found by clicking the underlined condition.
If you are looking for a quick way to kickoff your gratitude journey, HEY has created a gratitude work sheet and attached it below. This FREE gratitude journal page is so easy even children can use it!
Our family will take some time this Thanksgiving to begin our gratitude journey using the HEY Gratitude journal page. We hope you will join us!
