The Science of Happiness

The Institute of HeartMath research shows that the ‘stress’ hormone, cortisol, is released from the same glands as the ‘feel good’ hormone, DHEA.

We may have been trained to think that it is normal to have negative feelings about the challenges we face in life, but feelings of gratitude and appreciation are a more natural state of being. The well-being of the mind, body and spirit is profoundly enhanced when we are in an optimistic state of mind.

In her book, 5 Gifts for an Abundant Life,  Diane Harmony writes “when we are truly expressing appreciation for someone or something, there is a feeling that radiates from us that has its origins in our heart. The phrase ‘heartfelt thanks’ best describes the energy associated with authentic acts of gratitude which bring even more gifts.”

This is compound appreciation. It creates a very positive energy field all around us and others in our presence.
