Say Thanks

Now that Thanksgiving is over, just say thanks!

A recent article from TIME Magazine reported that being thankful can positively affect your health. It states that gratitude is good for your heart and helps prevent depression, stress and anxiety.

Reporter Alexandra Sifferlin writes, “In an April study of 186 men and women with heart damage, researchers rated the people’s levels of gratitude and spiritual well-being. They found that higher gratitude scores were linked to having a better mood, higher quality sleep and less inflammation—which can worsen the symptoms of heart failure.”

In addition to helping heart health, being grateful can help you be more optimistic, make new friends and improve physical health. To read the full article, see “Why Being Thankful Is Good For You.”
