Journal Cycle 2: Health & Fitness
Each cycle begins with a short snippet about the featured benefit of that cycle. This is the snippet for Cycle 2: Health & Fitness.
Studies have shown that people who regularly practice feeling thankful have a leg up when it comes to their health. Robert Emmons, a psychology professor at the University of California at Davis, has been a leading researcher in this growing field, termed “positive psychology.” His research has found that those who adopt an “attitude of gratitude” as a permanent state of mind experience many health benefits.
Deepak Chopra says, "Experiencing gratitude is one of the most effective ways of getting in touch with your soul. When you’re in touch with your soul, you eavesdrop on the thoughts of the universe. You feel connected to everything in creation. You embrace the wisdom of uncertainty and you sense yourself as a field of infinite possibilities."
Whether you consider gratitude a practical practice or a spiritual practice, studies show that it affects almost every aspect of your being.
