Giving Thanks

November is the month of giving thanks for all the good people and good memories that we have created over the years. In this blog, we will be talking about the importance of being grateful and its benefits. 


The gift of giving thanks magnifies our blessings and expands our ability to be a blessing to others. We as humans need to express gratitude and count our blessings since, for too long, the concept of appreciation has been ignored. 


And here are five reasons why giving thanks is good for you: 


Boosts your health: Grateful people had less depression and stress, lowered blood pressure, increased your energy, and more significance. 


Slow down the aging clock: Showing a modicum of gratitude for what others can do for you has proven to slow down some of the effects of neurodegeneration that often occur as we age. 


Put the breaks on stress: Positive emotions help reduce stress levels and let you enjoy the most of the moment. 


Helps you bond: This can lead to better relationships and create genuine friendships. It helps you stay calm and feel secure in relationships. 


Gratefulness = Good for the heart: People with high blood pressure can achieve up to a 10% reduction in systolic blood pressure. 


Giving thanks allows people to experience the grateful appreciation that people acknowledge for the goodness in their lives. It helps people to express their emotions more, relish good experiences and improve their mental health. This month commit to writing down at least three things you're grateful for.
