There is an antidote to the stress we are all feeling these days. It works well when sincerely put to use. It is so simple yet profound…. That antidote is Gratitude.

Consider this from Dr. Kathleen Hall, CEO and Founder of The Mindful Living Network and of the Stress Institute: “It is physiologically impossible to be grateful and stressed at the same time because the two emotional states release different types of hormones. One emotion will override the other.”

Is it any wonder that the God of us all counsels us to “be of good cheer” even in the worst of times?

Give it a try. Since we know stress is bad for us physically, emotionally, and spiritually, why not choose to cultivate an “attitude of gratitude.” Whenever stress threatens, begin focusing on what’s right in your life, instead of what is wrong. Do not even think about all those possible “what ifs” that will probably never happen. Do the very best you can in any given situation and then let go, trusting that things will work out.

Now is a time when we need to look for and see the good in others as well as the “silver lining” in every situation. It is there if we will pursue it.
