Boost Your Resilience with Gratutide


What if you could decrease anxiety, reduce symptoms of illness while improving the quality of your sleep and building emotional resilience?

According to some studies, gratitude can help.  I had been thinking about starting a Gratitude Journal, and this tip provided the final encouragement to give me lift. At night before I go to sleep, my goal is to write down three things I am grateful for. And it literally takes just a few minutes. But, be warned: You may not be able to stop at just three items!

Here is the very practical and easy to do tip for you that I learned from HBR Management Tip of the Day. You can subscribe here to get their daily tips.

    This is a great word, Steve! My wife has been doing this for years, and it has helped tremendously. One book she has read recently that the Medders gave her was 1000 Gifts. Great source of encouragement to her.

    In His service,

      Jack. I have heard of that book. So far I am really liking the journal too. I aim for at least 3 nights a week to write down 3 things. It makes me smile and is a nice way to reflect on the day. Thanks for stopping by. Blessings.

    Gratitude is such an overlooked value–I hear it so infrequently in the media, with our political people, even among family. It’s easy to point out the bad and wrong. It takes God to point out the hope and the good. Thanks for this, my friend. Wise words.
