I found an amazing website called www.mindful.org and this is just a brilliant exercise that can help you develop a bit of space for yourself and your mind to feel the joy that your heart needs to continue to be healthy and happy. I hope you liked it as much as I did!
A Simple Mindful Gratitude ExerciseBuilding your capacity for gratitude isn’t difficult. It just takes practice.
The more you can bring your attention to that which you feel grateful for, the more you’ll notice to feel grateful for! Those researchers at Indiana University did a further study. Using an fMRI scanner, they compared brain activity in the gratitude letter-writers with those who didn’t write a letter. The letter-writers showed greater neural sensitivity in the medial prefrontal cortex, a brain area associated with learning and decision-making—and the effect persisted three months later. “Simply expressing gratitude may have lasting effects on the brain,” they concluded, noting that practicing gratitude can lead to greater sensitivity to the experience of gratitude in the future. And that bodes well for everyone.
