Healthy Habits: Physical Benefits of Being Grateful

Orthology, an innovative, cost-effective solution for rapid recovery from back and body injuries as well as general wellness care with locations around the U.S., has developed a list on the physical benefits of being grateful, including:

·      Improved immune health – gratitude has been linked to optimism, which has shown to strengthen immune systems.
·      Stress management – feeling grateful can help manage stress and decrease the risk of heart disease, cancer and other debilitating conditions.
·      Improved sleep – studies show people who write down what they’re grateful for fall asleep and stay asleep faster.
·      Help build relationships – being grateful is linked to building and strengthening social bonds with others, alleviating loneliness, which has been linked to heart disease.

May you approach every day with gratitude for a healthy mind and body!
