We've ALL heard the saying...
"When LIFE gives you lemons, make Lemonade."
The only problem with that is
your lemonade is gonna suck without some SUGAR.
And.... in the words of my favorite 11 year old "Mom, it's up to US to be the SUGAR!"
Such wisdom from the mouth of a child....
but in fact, it is exactly what the research and modern Neuroscience will tell you.
The ability to adjust your perspective in the midst of adversity (Resilience)
is closely linked to our overall quality of WELLBEING!
So... what does that mean?
Resilience is our ability to recover from a negative situation
and according to suicide prevention programs around the country,
it is one of the most important qualities needed
to alter the overwhelming rise in suicide and depression rates
ALL across The United States.
Resilience, or the lack of,
is also directly linked with one's ability
to BE, or NOT BE GRATEFUL!
One of the leading Neuroscientists, Richard Davidson,
Founder and Director of The Center for Healthy Minds,
discusses how the amount of negative emotion we
has the direct ability to affect our level of HAPPINESS!
So.... what is the best way to alter what we're HOLDING ON TO..... it's GRATITUDE!
It's so easy to be HAPPY when things are going great,
however... the true measure of your overall state of WELLBEING
is the ability to bounce back, or be RESILIENT in the face of negativity.
GRATITUDE is the key to changing Resiliency!
Research shows those who rank
LOWESTon the GRATITUDE Spectrum
stay more focused on their obstacles and their weaknesses.
Developing a practice of GRATITUDE
has been shown in studies across the globe
to improve almost every single area of our lives;
from our ability to sleep, lose weight, be more productive at work,
lower blood pressure and improve our relationships.
But... most importantly GRATITUDE
drastically raises our ability to BE RESILIENT in the face of life's lemons,
because you KNOW how to become the SUGAR!
