Gratitude for Body and Mind

“Grateful thoughts and meditative states don’t just stay in your mind. Messenger molecules instantly transmit their effects to the body’s 100 trillion cells, creating new brain cells and new pathways and brain patterns. The practice of gratitude has even been found to change our gene expression in a positive direction.

By directing our awareness toward gratitude, our entire mind-body system is automatically oriented toward greater health and balance.” Deepak Chopra
