Happy New Year, friends!

I hate to do this to you guys, but I am way behind playing catch up. A friend of the family was fixing our computer between Thanksgiving and Christmas, and I had no opportunity to blog. I still want to write them if only for my own benefit. More timely and relevant blogs soon to come!

Feelings of gratitude give you a natural high. Grateful people tend to be more optimistic, a characteristic that researchers say boosts the immune system. Studies indicate that daily gratitude exercises result in higher reported levels of alertness, enthusiasm, determination, optimism, and energy. Grateful people experience less depression and stress, are more likely to help others, exercise regularly, and tend to make more progress toward personal goals. People who feel grateful are also more likely to feel loved.
