With everything happening around the world today…
What are you thankful about? Maybe this downtime is perfect to reflect on what you’re grateful about.
You see, an attitude of gratitude is the top recipe to keep your sanity and lessen the anxiety.
“Three decades of research shows that gratitude is a particularly potent emotion. When we experience high levels of gratitude, it’s linked to high levels of optimism, lower levels of stress and depression, better physical health, most of all, it’s linked to better immune system response.” That’s according to Australian academic, psychologist and author Lea Waters.
But biology aside, let's focus on how gratitude can affect our psyche. To quote, Robert Emmons, a world-renown psychologist and expert on the subject of gratitude: “In fact, it is precisely under crisis conditions when we have the most to gain by a grateful perspective on life.”
“In the face of demoralization, gratitude has the power to energize. In the face of brokenness, gratitude has the power to heal. In the face of despair, gratitude has the power to bring hope.”
Giving thanks means that we'll be able to realize that we can still survive and life doesn’t have to stop...
Personally, I'm thankful for my family, my health, my business. And, especially YOU, who has helped build up Scruffy Jack’s.
Maybe another silver lining to this is teaching us to live simpler yet abundant lives, with less attachment to things, and relationships are our ultimate happiness.
“Being grateful is not ignoring the struggles you’re going through seeing, it means you’re putting those into perspective – that there are still moments of good.”
That even amidst all these, here you are…
Still standing tall.
And you know what?
I’d like to think that after all this will be over, when we’ll all go back to our normal routines, you’re going to experience life like it’s the first time again...the rebirth of something new.
You’re going to see life with a new set of fresh eyes – a renewed perspective... Always grateful.
For everything – for life, for health, for freedom…
Aaah...simple yet basic things that we may have all taken for granted before the crisis happened.
