Gratitude for Stress ReliefNov 24, 2021
If you're like most of the women I work with you've probably heard that gratitude is a beneficial practice that helps combat stress, awaken joy, and improve your mood - and it's not just for Thanksgiving either!
And this is true, results from research studies have shown that gratitude can change what is happening in your brain - actually triggering the release of serotonin which leads to an increase in positive feelings and can halt the stress response (fight or flight reaction) in its tracks.
Yet gratitude can lose its power if you repetitively and mechanically go through the motions of making a huge list of things you're grateful for.
I'm sure you've seen this and probably done it too. Getting on autopilot as you write in your journal, "I'm thankful for my family, my house, my dog, the rain, etc."
I know that you really are grateful for all of them, but if you're not actually taking the time to stop and deeply connect with each item you probably aren't really feeling all that grateful in the moment.
Which also means that your gratitude practice isn't giving you all those amazing benefits and good feelings.
So in this video I'm explaining some other ways to bring gratitude into your life that don't require a journal and will help gratitude keep its magic.
If you're in a gratitude rut this is a must see!
It's an excerpt from a longer workshop I did with members in the Blessful Body Member Hive but I wanted you to get chance to discover:

So check out this quick video with easy to implement tips so you can get all the benefits from a meaningful gratitude practice, without spending all your time journaling!
