Gratitude Promotes Quality Sleep
There are many factors that affect one’s quality of sleep. One of them is stress.
But researchers In England found a great way to promote sleep at night. The only thing they would have to do is close their eyes, stop worrying, and be grateful for the great things that happened all through the day.
In a study in the United Kingdom, participants were asked to write in a gratitude journal for 15 minutes every night before going to sleep. They found that after about 3 weeks it helped participants to sleep longer and better.
In another study, researchers from the University of Manchester looked into the effects of having high sense of gratitude, to sleeping. Their study involved 400 adults of all ages, 40% of whom have sleeping disorders. They were given questionnaires about gratitude, sleep, and pre-sleep thoughts. Gratitude was measured by how optimistic the participants were. The researchers found that those who rated high in gratitude scales are those who are able to doze off quickly. They also had the highest quality of sleep.
