I am grateful to the internet as a health tool!

 

I love how much information is there, so if you have tests done, you can "do your homework" on the results, even before meeting with your doctor.

 

I love that most labs & many doctors allow you to make an appointment online, and do it well in advance, so you get the time most convenient for you! And by entering the data ahead of time, you don't get stuck rushing to fill at forms when you get there.

Whenever I'm in a medical waiting room, I look at the other people sitting there, and am grateful that I don't have as many complications as they have! I know that some of their problems may not be their fault, but others are related to poor diet & lifestyle choices. That's certainly motivation for me to make better choices, because I don't want to wind up barely mobile & unable to breathe!

Grateful that truth needs nothing from anyone in order to be truth. Truth just is.

Grateful for distinct personalities, that our unique approaches to life has made such a fascinating, if not downright hypnotic, display.

Feel free to post a thought of gratefulness here whenever you like. Gratitude (even just the exercise of looking for something for which to be grateful) will improve your health.

 

Here's what Eric Barker, UCLA researcher, has to say about it:

 

Gratitude, Gratitude, Gratitude
I can’t emphasize this one enough. Showing gratitude for the good things you have is the most powerful happiness boosting activity there is.
It will make you happier.
It will improve your relationships.
It can make you a better person.
It can make life better for everyone around you.

Grateful that we live in a place with four seasons, and that we enjoy each season in its time.
