Gratitude Rocks!

Thought for today….Gratitude Rocks! 
Did you know that gratitude has an impact on your brain at a biological level? 

Did you know that what some anti-depressants do…gratitude does too! 

Releases Dopamine! 

When we feel grateful we are actually activating the region of the brain that produces dopamine~> the organic chemical in our brains that makes you feel and do happy things!

So if you’re feeling down…do something that makes you think or feel grateful–>Pump up that feel good organic chemical!!

Need something to help you do this consistently? Pick a ‘Gratitude’ item. Ever time you touch or feel that item make yourself think or say something that you’re grateful for! Ie. I use my rings. Everytime I put them on or take them off OR see them OR if something draws my attention to feeling them on my finger–> I think of things I’m grateful for!

I am 35 yrs. old -a Wife and Mother to a Beautiful Boy and my Rainbow Baby Girl. I am a dance and fitness instructor. I own a fitness studio where I offer a variety of fitness classes in the evenings. I recently have become a FULL TIME Fitness Coach after 3+ years of working as a Day Care Assistant after having my Son and leaving my Emotionally Taxing Case Management Position. Fitness is my passion! I love to work out on my own AND with others! Throughout my both of my pregnancies I continued to work out on my own and with Beachbody programs, live my dream of being a work from home mom (for most of the day), and teach at my studio (and other locations) in the evening. After the birth of my son I have worked hard to get my pre-preg. body back. Shaun T's T25 was initial program and then Tony's P90X3 BOTH which I loved the short affective times because with having a newborn baby that was EXACTLY what I needed. I know and understand the self discipline it takes to achieve your desired goals and I am still on that path and have my struggles as everyone else does! I love to offer my support to my clientele with group fitness classes I offer in my community and I feel we work as a team all together to HELP each other. I LOVE offering my support via the web too as I REACH other people that I can't physically see. IT IS AMAZINGLY rewarding and I can't imagine NOT doing what I do! Im currently on my postpartum journey once again and so GRATEFUL and BLESSED to live this healthy lifestyle, lead by example for my family, and support others on their journey too!
