How we respond to stressful situations and times of uncertainty can play a vital role in keeping our immune systems strong and our mind and body healthy. Choosing to look for the good around you and showing gratitude for what you have can improve physical, mental and emotional health.

From improved sleep, reduced depression, decreased stress and even fewer aches and pains, being grateful can drastically change your overall well-being and increase your ability to adapt to traumatic, life-changing events. Here are a few tips to start you off:

  • Start a gratitude journal. Try writing down at least one thing you are thankful for daily.
  • Give thanks out loud. Practice saying thank you, even for the small things.
  • Slow down. Take a moment to savor your experiences and be grateful for each day.
  • Write thank you notes. Tell someone how much they mean to you.
  • Find time to reflect. Take a moment of silence to count your blessings.

Challenge yourself to be joyful, present and appreciative during times of adversity and watch as your perspective and health start to change.
