GRATITUDE. This isn’t another email to remind you “to be grateful for what you have, to make a gratitude list, etc…” it’s an email to get you thinking about why we actually need gratitude? WHY is it so important? And, can it actually impact athletic performance?
Without geeking out too deeply (and because I am not the scientist here), I am just going to say that because we know our minds and bodies are connected, we KNOW that gratitude has a significant impact on our mental and physical health because it rewires our brain for less fear and increased motivation. When we perform gratitude practices repeatedly, we can shift those neural brain circuits for the better, and in fact, our performance can drastically improve….it’s science.
Take my word for it, but mainly take a scientist’s word for it.😁 Learn how to build a gratitude practice that will make you a superhuman both in sport and life by listening to Andrew Huberman’s recent podcast, The Science of Gratitude & How to Build a Gratitude Practice, below.
With love (& gratitude),
