So gratitude is a vital nutrient for hormone balance for loving your life feeling fabulous. I'm Robin Nielsen. And you know, this is my favorite time of year because we're getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving. And I want to share with you why giving things all year long, not just right now is good for healing symptoms of hormone imbalance, like weight gain, anxiety, fatigue, all of it. In fact, it may just be the secret elixir the magic potion for getting and staying balanced more of the time. So here's what the science tells us about an attitude of gratitude. It lowers stress hormones, women with hormonal imbalance and they have higher than normal stress hormones, and a study of 45 adults who were taught to cultivate appreciation and other positive emotions. There was a 23% reduction in cortisol or stress hormone, and 100% increase in DHEA, which really balances cortisol. It's a counterbalance to cortisol. Plus, there was increased coherence in heart rate variability patterns, so you're more stressed resilient, your heart is doing better. It improves sleep, we know that women can have a hard time getting a good night's sleep. A recent study found that by writing in a gratitude journal for just 15 minutes every evening, helped women worry less at bedtime and sleep longer and better afterwards. It improves physical health, so those who are grateful exercise more wow and more movement increases positive brain chemistry, which helps keep this awesome cycle going. It reduces aches and pains. According to a study published in 2012. Grateful people experience fewer aches and pains. It lowers depression. Those who show more show more gratitude are less depressed and that means less cravings, better sleep and a more positive outlook, less craving and increases motivation. Gratitude activates regions in the brain associated with dopamine, the brain chemical that seeks out reward and also helps us initiate action which we really need to help us heal and stay well. And maybe why we want to exercise more. It improves positivity. So gratitude keeps your brain and a virtuous cycle looking for more things to be grateful for what we put our attention on grow. So practicing gratitude grows exactly what we want, we get more of what we're grateful for. So here are three ways to develop your gratitude muscles. Keep a gratitude journal and write down five things each night that you're grateful for and why before going to bed. Number two, deploy opposition thinking, when a negative thought comes into your mind, immediately think the opposite, turn a negative into a positive. And the final one, number three, get into a routine. Challenge yourself to commit and practice every day for the next 10 to 10 days and see what happens. An attitude of gratitude can increase your determination, attention, enthusiasm and energy compared to other groups. It's not simply noticing that you're better off than others. That's not gratitude. But rather, gratitude requires an appreciation of the positive aspects of your situation. And that's from Alex score PhD. So it takes practice, like any other skill or habit, but it feels so good, that once you start, you'll be hooked because it's a vital nutrient for everyone.
