#248 – A Serving of Gratitude May Save the Day – John Tierny, New York Times

“Cultivating an attitude of gratitude has been linked to better health, sounder sleep, less anxiety and depression, higher long term satisfaction with life and kinder behaviour to others, including romantic partners,” Tierny says in todays article in the New York Times.  One study stated that writing just one sentence of five things you are grateful for once a week made people happier and more optomistic than the control group. They also reported fewer physical problems, slept longer at night and were also less aggressive.

Something to think about during the stressful holidays.

About sand1

When I was young, I made a lot of bad choices. The only way I knew to dig myself and my family out was to go to the library, always hoping that the next book I read would change my life and thankfully, often many of them did. Out of gratitude for the happy life I have now, I decided to share what I have learned, and continue to learn. I hope that Tuesday Tips helps you as much as they have helped and continue to help me.
