Gratitude: A cure for insomnia, high blood pressure, asthma…everything?

Nancy David Kho spent a year writing thank you letters to people who helped and inspired her in some way. I gobbled up her reflections on the experience in a 12/15/19 San Francisco Chronicle essay, “What I never expected was how profoundly my thank-you letter writing would impact me, permanently changing the way I moved through the world and deepening my relationships with the recipients of the letters.”

Kho adds, “I later learned that neuroscientists consider an authentic expression of gratitude to be one of the most effective way to reset the parasympathetic nervous system; studies say  it improves the quality of sleep, decreases, blood pressure and can even improve asthma control.”

She wrote letters, you can write little books with our journals!
