Today a friend gave me an interesting article :) It was about the effects of stress and its correlation to belly fat. It also had a big emphasis on spiritual or religious beliefs and how they have a positive impact on decreasing stress. Really interesting studies and info. SO, it also mentioned that people who do some sort of daily thinking--whether it be praying, meditating, writing, and it even SPECIFICALLY mentioned a thankful journal. YEAH! It made me think of exactly how I feel and have felt since I started my thankful blog back in November--just that difference in outlook and positive energy. COOL.
