༼ ◔ ͜ʖ ◔ ༽ Nº117 An Attitude of Gratitude 🙏 🙇

New Year’s resolutions have a bad reputation. 
Considering taking on one that you can follow through with: adopt an attitude of gratitude. In my experience, it is a win/win for you and everyone around you. 
Dan Mager put together some great reasons why:
  • Gratitude facilitates contentment. Practicing gratitude is one of the most reliable methods for increasing contentment and life satisfaction. Conversely, gratitude also reduces anxiety and depression.
  • Gratitude promotes physical health. Studies suggest gratitude helps to lower blood pressure, strengthen the immune system, reduce symptoms of illness, and make us less bothered by aches and pains.
  • Gratitude enhances sleep. Grateful people tend to get more sleep each night, spend less time awake before falling asleep, and feel more rested upon awakening. If you want to sleep more soundly, instead of counting sheep count your blessings.
  • Gratitude strengthens relationships. It makes us feel closer and more connected to friends and intimate partners. When partners feel and express gratitude for each other, they each become more satisfied with their relationship.
  • Gratitude encourages “paying it forward.” Grateful people are generally more helpful, generous of spirit, and compassionate. These qualities often spill over onto others.
I was inspired to make gratitude the theme this week after spotting this tweet
“Who is a person (not counting family) that opened doors for you in your career when they didn’t have to? Anytime is a good time to show gratitude!” 
Especially this week: thank you for reading! : )
Happy Holidays & Happy New Year from Amsterdam,
Jon
