NB Inspiration: The Power Of Appreciation

The practice of appreciation as a device for happiness has been in the mainstream for many years. Long-term research supports appreciation’s efficiency to improve your life, recommending that a positive, appreciative attitude helps in a higher success rate at work, better health, peak performance in sports, a greater sense of well-being, and a quicker rate of recovery from surgery.

However while we could acknowledge appreciation’s numerous advantages, it still can be tough to sustain. A lot of us are trained to observe exactly what is broken, undone or lacking in our lives. And for appreciation to meet its full healing capacity in our lives, it needs to become more than just a giving thanks word. We have to find out a new means of looking at things, a new practice, which can take a while.

That’s why practicing appreciation makes a lot of sense. When we exercise giving thanks for all we have, instead of complaining about everything we lack, we provide ourselves the chance to see every one and all of life as a possibility and a blessing.

Remember that appreciation isn’t a blindly positive approach in which the bad things in life are whitewashed or overlooked. It’s more a matter of where we put our focus and attention. Discomfort and injustice exist in this world, but when we focus on the gifts of life, we acquire a sensation of well-being. Appreciation balances us and gives us hope.

There are numerous things to appreciate: the breath of life, family, your body, colourful fall leaves, legs that walk, friends who listen and truly hear,, fresh eggs, warm clothes in the cold, fresh fruit, the capability to eat food, roses, our wellness, butterflies. Exactly what’s on your list? And don't forget to appreciate beautiful 'NellieyBelle' that brings you goodies everyday...Hahahaha.

Ok people, bye for now, it's weekEND and am rapping it up with a HOT kiss for ya :-)

Nelly Ok. xoxo
