This feature is part of Mindstream’s participation in the Wellness Moonshot, an awareness campaign for a world free of preventable disease that’s led by The Global Wellness Institute. Here’s our package for December 2020.
How can feeling gratitude and acting with thanks contribute to wellness?
“Science teaches us that living and leading with gratitude enhances our mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health. It helps us to forge positive relationships with others, as well as ourselves. And, it uplifts our work experience and the culture of our organizations,” Renee Moorefield, Ph.D., writes on the Global Wellness Institute’s blog this month. She prompts us to think about thankfulness as a way of being and an act of doing.
Evidence that ‘thanks’ helps us comes from both personal experience and research, as explained in the stories below. Please add your thoughts by commenting below.
