How many times have you paused so far today to ‘stop and smell the roses?’ That is to think about and reflect upon those things that you appreciate?
Tal Beh – Shahar says...“The word appreciate has two meanings. The first meaning is ‘to be thankful,’ the opposite of taking something for granted. The second meaning is ‘to increase in value’ (as money appreciates in the bank). Combined, these two meanings point to a truth that has been proved repeatedly in research on gratitude: when we appreciate the good in our lives, the good grows and we have more of it. The opposite, sadly, is also true: when we fail to appreciate the good—when we take the good in our lives for granted—the good depreciates.”
Take a moment to put some things into your ‘wellness bank.’
In fact, when you can, take a few moments throughout your day....everyday.
