Using gratitude as a tool for happiness has been mainstream for years. Long-term studies support gratitude’s effectiveness, suggesting that an appreciative attitude contributes to success in work, health, and recovery.
Fostering a deep appreciation for your body and what it can do, is a crucial step in healing your relationship with food and body image. Building body confidence is much easier when you can learn to appreciate your body for what it can do.
When you practice giving thanks for our body, instead of complaining or worrying about what you lack, you give yourself the chance to see all of life as an opportunity and a blessing.
It’s a matter of where you put your focus and attention. Pain and injustice exist in this world, but when we focus on the gifts of life, we gain a feeling of well-being. Gratitude balances us and gives us hope.
There are many things to be grateful for: colourful autumn leaves, legs that work, arms that can hug, warm jackets, the ability to read, roses, butterflies. What’s on your list?
