Even animals can say thank you.
Did you know that by amping up your appreciation, you are undressing your stress?
When you activate positive feelings - ones that are genuine - you affect your heart rate variability. The smoother the rhythm, the better it is for you. (Learn to tell when you've actually made the switch or are just thinking you've made the switch, which is what I did until I had the program to show me the difference.)
Go ahead and amp up your appreciation by finding some small thing that has brightened your day in some way.
For example, while I was out shopping yesterday, someone sat down at the electric keyboard in the store and began playing Fur Elise. I love that! It was a welcomed interlude to an otherwise dreary chore.
Your turn. What is on your appreciation list today?
