Without Gratitude There Is No Lasting Health

When we start being grateful for the things we have, it’s hard to believe the positive difference in our lives.

An Attitude of Gratitude Serves as the Foundation of all Healing

I want to share this truth about gratitude with you because it can help you lead a more vibrant and healthy life. I start my clients off on the pathway of appreciation because I know that if they don’t have an attitude of gratitude, there is usually no lasting health.

While short-term changes in eating habits or physical health and appearance can be seen when clients follow our protocols, long-term health problems can sometimes remain. Hauntingly, many people do not achieve lasting health and vitality if they cannot learn to be thankful.

For many of my clients, developing an attitude of gratitude is a long and challenging process. They’ve spent most of their lives in emotional turmoil—and haven’t learned how to rest peacefully within themselves when things are going well.

When they start being grateful for the things they have, it’s hard to believe that this will make much of a difference in their lives. But once they start, many people are amazed at how quickly their outlook and health improve. I’ve seen it happen repeatedly—and I’m always delighted when it does! This is because gratitude is one of the most potent forces in the universe—unlike any other form of energy.

We are patient and loving, knowing that it can take time for our clients to embrace a life of gratitude and holistic health. So we gently guide them in recognizing—even for us, it’s the little changes we see! Once they start counting their blessings, it’s only a matter of time before good things start happening in their lives.

Seeing our clients find joy and gratitude in their lives is uplifting—and this positive change impacts their health and every aspect of their existence. They start eating better, sleeping more soundly, exercising regularly, and improving their health. All I can say is: Thank you!

Recent scientific studies

According to research by the Institute of HeartMath, gratitude “improves the heart’s rhythmic functioning, which helps us to reduce stress, think more clearly under pressure, and heal physically.” It’s physiologically impossible to be stressed and simultaneously have a heart of gratitude.

Great Reasons to Live in Gratitude

 “Amid a grateful heart, we find the peace that passes our human understanding.”

Dr. Lisa Aspinwall, professor of psychology at the University of Utah, “has determined that grateful people may be more likely to:

  • Take better care of themselves physically and mentally
  • Engage in more protective health behaviors and maintenance
  • Get more regular exercise
  • Eat a healthier diet
  • Have improved mental alertness
  • Schedule regular physical examinations with their doctor
  • Cope better with stress and daily challenges
  • Feel happier and more optimistic
  • Avoid problematic physical symptoms
  • Have stronger immune systems
  • Maintain a brighter view of the future

Being grateful keeps us from focusing too much on the past or speculating too much about the future. Being grateful helps us appreciate and be happy with what we have. It can help us see life’s bright side even when things are not going well. It can also help us realize that we don’t always have to have more, but sometimes less is more! Our life is a journey, and we all have ups and downs. But being grateful can help us to be more positive, less stressed out, healthier, and happier overall.
