1. Start the day in a posture of gratitude. Each morning, though my eyes are barely open and I haven't had my first café au lait, my mind is racing through a to-do-list. That's exactly why starting my day with prayer, meditation, and affirmations are essential to my well-being. It helps me focus and feel empowered to manage the day's challenges. Furthermore, scientific research abounds with the health benefits of prayer and meditation, including:
- Decreasing stress
- Boosting immune systems
- Increasing oxygen levels
Personally speaking, gratitude helps me to see what is there, instead of what isn't.
