Episode 42 - The Healing Power of Giving Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s awesome that we have a holiday dedicated to the simple act of “Giving Thanks.”

In addition, it’s awesome how many health benefits are connected to “Giving Thanks.”

For example, did you know that people who practice “Giving Thanks” have healthier Immune Systems than those who don’t?

Or that they handle stress better?

And sleep better?

Those three benefits alone have a HUGE impact on one’s health… and they all can be improved simply by making “Giving Thanks” a habit.

But that’s not all.

People who practice “Giving Thanks” display higher levels of happiness, joy, enthusiasm, optimism and love.

They also experience less bitterness, resentment, greed, envy, fear, anxiety, worry and anger.


But here’s the one that really impressed me:

“Giving Thanks” is shown to lower levels of inflammation.

That’s incredibly important as inflammation is THE common factor behind every major disease including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and Alzheimer’s.

Now, if you could take ALL of these benefits and wrap them into a pill, you’d be a billionaire!

But you can’t… and that’s all right because you don’t need another pill in your life.

You simply need to practice “Giving Thanks.”

And, in this episode, we share with you simple ways to do that.

Specifically, we share a few morning "tips" that anyone can implement into their life today so that they can begin to experience the benefits immediately.

So, give this episode a good listen. Then be sure to share it with a friend.
