Come to the calm of a well functioning brain.
I found an article on the Psychology Today website about Gratitude. The article was about how scientists have found measurable impacts of Thanking people. The impacts are on the physical and neurochemical states of our being.
Using fMRI the researchers at University of Southern California found that gratitude can impact the parts of the brain that are associated with empathy, impulse control, emotion, and decision making.
Again using fMRI a group of researchers in Korea found that gratitude helps the heart rate to be lower and that resentment made the heart rate go up.
In an article in Neuroscience, some researchers reported that they found an increase in oxytocin with people in romantic relationships. This helps the bold to improve.
There was also investigations into the workplace and how thank-you goes a long way in improving moral.
I hope that your Thanksgiving is filled with gratitude and good friends and family.
