Confidence and Conditioning: Who Is Your Hero?

Who has been there for you?

In big ways or small ways- heck, even on a random Tuesday afternoon, who has been there for you?

This week, let them know. Write a letter and use snail- mail to make it stand out. Just TELL them and thank them. You’ll feel better instantly, and you’ll make someone’s day a little brighter, too.

Gratitude has been shown to lower feelings of stress and anxiety. In fact, studies have found that a single act of thoughtful gratitude produces an immediate 10% increase in happiness, and a 35% reduction in depressive symptoms. These effects disappear within three to six months, which reminds us to practice gratitude over and over.

Now step outside yourself and go write that personalized card (or text message) to your own Gratitude Hero.
