Sleep Experience, Betty Smith, and 2 Corinthians 4:15 (Everyday Thanks #491)

Our thankful thought for today is this: A study was done of 400 healthy individuals on the correlation of sleep and gratitude. Those who scored higher on the gratitude test also had a remarkably better sleep experience. They went to sleep faster, stayed asleep longer, were less likely to have interruptions in their sleep throughout the night, felt rested when they woke up, and were able to stay awake throughout the day. This individuals did not necessarily have a better life or an easier life, they simply were more grateful for the everyday aspects of life and it resulted in a more positive personality and outlook on situations. Gratitude benefits both our conscious and subconscious minds and is something we can practice anytime and anywhere.

Our quote of thanks is from Betty Smith. She said, “Look at everything as though you were seeing it for the first or the last time, then your time on earth will be filled with glory.”

Our Bible verse of thanks is 2 Corinthians 4:15. It reads, “For it is all for your sake, so that as grace extends to more and more people it may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God.”
