We’re in the holiday season, and for the next few months, our lives are packed with activities. Today I’m asking you to stop and take a minute to be grateful. It’s good for your brain, body, health, and for everyone around you. Studies show that practicing gratitude releases positive neurochemicals, like dopamine, and engages the reward system in the brain. Your attitude of gratitude builds long-lasting reward circuits that are coupled with positive behavior and thought patterns developed through meaning and intention. The simple act of gratitude strengthens positive brain circuits allowing for greater brain power and prosperity.
