Gratitude is one of the healthiest emotions for your body.
It sends chemicals through your body that encourage revitalization and calmness.
But how can I be grateful when our world is in turmoil – Covid, War, Corruption
When you focus on what you do want, your body and brain react similarly, leading you to make decisions based on hope, love, and gratitude.
By focusing on gratitude, you put yourself into a state of already having everything you want and need, instead of feeling lack. When you feel whole, you broadcast this frequency, attracting more of it, and you also notice more things similar to what you’re grateful for.
That is why it is so important to keep your mind on things to be grateful for. Even the little ones or stuff we take for granted.
You may be wondering, what should I be thankful for?
