Health Fusion: Meet the Gratitude Junkie
Why bother with gratitude? In this episode of NewsMD's "Health Fusion," Viv Williams hangs out with the Gratitude Junkie, an author, speaker and entrepreneur who shares how a traumatic life event compelled him to become a conductor of gratitude.
ROCHESTER — Gratitude has become a buzz word lately. And with good reason. Research into the benefits of being grateful shows it's good for your health. An article from Harvard Medical School notes that gratefulness is associated with boosts in happiness, which can enhance your mind and body.
My guest knows that firsthand.
"Why should we do it? Gratitude is good for you," says Chris (the Gratitude Junkie) Palmore, an author, radio host and creator of gratitudespace.com . "Everything in your life will be better. You will feel better, you will look better, you will move around better, you will be more present and you will enjoy things more."
Watch or listen as Palmore tells the story of how he turned a family tragedy into a project that works to improve lives through gratitude. And he gives some tips on how you can make gratitude part of your daily life.
