New You Health Tip: Being grateful help you to live a healthier life.

Feeling angry or frustrated can cause erratic heart-rhythm patterns. The erratic signals are then sent to the brain, causing negative or stressful feelings. These negative stressful feelings not only affect the body but the ability to think clearly as well. Gratitude, on the other hand, not only promotes good karma, it also supports a healthy cardiovascular and immune system. A recent study published by the American Journal of Cardiology demonstrates that gratitude and appreciation can provide long-term health benefits. To up your daily dose of gratitude, show appreciation to a family member, friend or even co-worker and reap the benefits.
