Gratitude Changes Your Brain

happywaterfall

Just being positive and giving thanks for what you have can dramatically change your brain according to several studies.  A recent study published in NeuroImage shows that months after a simple task of writing down grateful thoughts, the brain is still wired to feel thankful. Researchers used MRI scans to study brain regions connected to desire to help and feeling thankful.  Three months after a “pay it forward” task the brains of people involved in the study were still lighting up with activity in the gratitude region.
