It seems like a simple question, but is it something you really think about daily?
For me the answer would have been no. Yes, I’m grateful, but I really only thought about it on a special occasion, or maybe when I was able to sleep an extra couple of hours on the weekend (I cherish my sleep).
For a very long time I’ve taken medication for depression and anxiety. Lately I’ve been researching various natural remedies and practices that could change my attitude, beliefs, habits, and general wellness. I started to read articles and watch videos in my search for change and gratitude kept presenting itself. I had no idea that there is scientific proof that gratitude can actually change your brain! I also discovered that the way I was thinking was directly effecting my body and my experiences. I had become “comfortable in my own misery” (I love that phrase) thinking that nothing would change…so nothing changed. Yes, thoughts can be toxic and debilitating!
