Appreciating What Is—Reminds Me that Life is Good

Doesn’t it feel good to be appreciated? When someone shares with you their appreciation, whether about you or something positive that happened to them, the feeling is palpable. That’s because appreciation is a powerful emotion that positively impacts our entire system. Science has shown that this single emotion can positively enhance our attitudes, our immune system, our heart rhythms – even our mental clarity.

There’s a wonderful quote by Robert Brault that goes, “appreciate the little things in life for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.” Rather than waiting to look back, we can intentionally add more of this powerful and beneficial energy in our lives by just taking a couple moments every day to genuinely feel the appreciation we have for our friends, loved ones and even the kindness we may have received from someone we don’t know.

Consciously applying appreciation adds value to that which is important in our lives and reminds us that life is good!
