    Prescription – Gratitude

    Prescription – Gratitude

    How much would you be willing to pay for a drug that helps you relax, reduces stress, improves sleep, reduces depression and encourages you to exercise? This drug is totally free and you have total control of the manufacturing of this drug. The drug is called GRATITUDE. More and more scientific studies continue to prove that gratitude is good for our health.

    In order to get the true benefit, there must be action behind the gratitude. Two years ago, in the blog, titled, Gratitude – Singing a Love Song to Your Soul, I suggested getting a small notebook and writing three things you are grateful for each evening before you go to bed and when you awake in the morning, you review what you have written. You will notice a difference in yourself in just one week. Last year, in the blog titled, The Gratitude Exercise for Health, I recommended finding 1 -2 people and texting each other three things you were grateful for and doing this for 30 days. This year, I am suggesting that we send out thank you notes.

    These thank you notes are not for items received, but to someone who has made you the person that you are today. The act of writing the note is a wonderful exercise and for those that receive that note, it is priceless. The person sending the letter and the person receiving the letter both benefit. I have sent a letter to my mother thanking her for all the she has done for me over the years. I recently sent a letter to the person who interviewed me for medical school.

    There are various ways to express gratitude. Find what works for you. Not only is expressing gratitude great for our health, but it is truly the love song to our soul.

      Good one! I am currently writing a book about this:-) If we look diligently, we will find things to be grateful for in ordinary days. Thanks for the reminder!

    The book discusses common gynecological and women’s health issues in a series of witty and entertaining letters. These letters, all educational, offer suggestions on what approaches to take in tackling the medical problems that typically bring women to an ob/gynecologist. The letters are spiced with art, a poem and quotes. Although its emphasis is on gynecology and women’s health, it touches on some other medical issues that make women visit their doctors.

    The second half of the book briefly discusses the most common gynecological conditions and also provides an overview of sexually transmitted infections. A list of annotated websites dealing with the different topics in the book is provided for the reader who wants to pursue each subject in depth.
