Did You know cultivating and having a gratitude attitude is very ancient advice?
“Show yourselves thankful,” wrote Paul. (lawyer, apostle, Colossians 3:15)
(As well as very relevant-modern advice for anxiety.)
“Gratitude is the healthiest of all human emotions.” – Zig Ziglar
If we are busy counting our positives in life, our blessings: perhaps, we are less consumed, anxious, and hyper-focused on what we lack. Try it! and compile your own research, your own personal evidence.
“Trying to think of things you are grateful for forces you to focus on the positive aspects of your life. This simple act increases serotonin production in the anterior cingulate cortex.” Dr. Alex Korb, Upward Spiral.
Simple? Spiral? Step forward toward gratitude and away from anxiety.
