“Gratitude is good medicine, “ says Robert Emmons, Ph.D., author of The Little Book of Gratitude. “Clinical trials indicate that the practice of gratitude can have dramatic and lasting positive effects in a person’s life. It can lower blood pressure and improve immune function. Grateful people en-gage in more exercise, have better dietary behaviors and are less likely to smoke and abuse alcohol.” The good news is be-ing grateful is the gift that seriously keeps on giving!
A simple way to get started is to take a moment to consider that your arms can hold that special person you love, your feet can take you up a mountain and you can savor that favorite meal that you’ve cooked a dozen times. It’s simple.
Here at Primrose we want to express our gratitude to all our families who have given us the opportunity to care for their loved ones. Each one so very special to us!
