Gratitude, Positive Thinking, and the Art of Change
UPDATED: Mon. 12/16 at 11:00 AMThis program has been postponed due to illness. Line One: Your Health Connection will return Jan. 6, 2014.
We all know those people. People who insist that life is a bowl full of cherries and that it rains dandelion kisses. People who practice gratitude despite great suffering and who choose charity and humility over self gain or glorification. Those among us who make us feel better when we are around them, who inspire us to be kinder, gentler, and more humane. Ever wonder why people like that tend to be happier and more successful? Do you find yourself wishing you could be a more positive person or appreciate more, the blessings you have?
Research studies show that individuals who exhibit and express the most gratitude are happier, healthier, and more energetic. Grateful people report fewer symptoms such as headaches, stomachaches, nausea, even acne, and spend more time exercising. Additionally the more a person is inclined towards gratitude, the less lonely, stressed, anxious and depressed he or she will be.
Joining us in studio for her second appearance on Line One will be Clinical Psychologist, Dr. Jennifer Beathe. We will be exploring the connection between gratitude and positive thinking, and our physical and emotional health.
