Two Words Full of Heart

Thank you.

Some people have a great deal of difficulty in uttering these words, others say it with reckless abandon - without feeling or meaning. Then, there's those who are able to imbue those 2 words with care and appreciation.

Throughout our day and over the course of our lifetime, we fluctuate between all of those degrees of thank you. Until...

...you know that those two little words have a heart-full of meaning and a meaning full of heart. Feelings of gratitude and appreciation are good for you. You can actually see a change in your Heart Rate Variability - the way in which your heart speeds up and slows down.

When the rhythm is jagged, it means your system is out of synch. Like a car that needs a tune-up - you don't run as well.

One of the easiest ways to tune yourself up is to apply feelings of gratitude and appreciation. When you use them with in-the-moment techniques, your heart rhythms respond - they smoothen out and pull your other systems into synch.

What does that mean for you? Improved emotional, mental and physical health and well-being.

Isn't that something to be thankful for? I know I am!

  1. Your post is so true. I have a few of the Thai Chi moves that I use when my breathing is headed for an anxiety attack. I learn so much from your posts. I may need a refresher course the closer i get to retirement!

  2. Thanks, Judy,
    I once worked with a client who thought the techniques weren't working.

    We got to chatting & in passing, the client told me that she enjoyed 2 hockey games. (Being out in a crowd would trigger a panic attack.)

    Normally that doesn't happen - her attention is not on the game as she is usually looking for a way out.

    Seems like you have a few strategies to give you a way out - of your anxiety.

    Where do you work?

  3. I do thank you from the heart for all the growth I have watched you exhibit every day since we've met. Hopefully, I have done half as well.

  4. Thank you, Conrad!

    Your writing has grown, as has the number of connections with new people.

    For the rest, I'll put the question back to you: How have you grown?
