We know that real beauty comes from within. When we feel good inside, it radiates to the outside. Studies show that focusing on gratitude and journaling all that we’re grateful for leads to improved sleep, a decrease in depression symptoms and illness, and an increase in overall health and happiness. No need to write a novel, just list a few things that you’re grateful for each day. Surround yourself (and others) with reminders to be thankful for even the smallest things in life and don’t forget to acknowledge other’s thoughtful acts with a simple note. Small gestures make a big difference! After completing all of your journaling and note writing for the day, pamper yourself with a moisturizing hand massage. Your hands will thank you!
