Gratitude

Did you know that grateful people sleep better?  According to the results of a recent study that were printed in the November issue of  the Good Housekeeping magazine, this statement is true.  It stated that grateful people go to bed with less negative attitudes and therefore sleep better.

According to other studies, grateful people seem to do better all around – they have better health, are less depressed, are happier with their lives and are more satisfied with their relationships.

A quote from Melodie Beattie says, “Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity…. It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow. ”

A friend recently posted a challenge to her facebook page:  that each day during this month of Thanksgiving we post one thing we are grateful for.
Are you up for this challenge?  What are you grateful for today?

  1. Since today is Nov. 10th, I will list 10 things that I am grateful for: God, my family, the fact that we are employed, that we have a roof over our heads, my church family, friends, fall days, a good book to read, that my grandson got a 10 out of 10 on his spelling test yesterday – a great achievement for him, and freedom.
