Give the Cancer Gift of Optimism
In positive psychology research, gratitude is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness. Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity better, and build stronger relationships.
To help a cancer patient regain optimism and a sense of control this gift includes two simple items to help cultivate gratitude.
1. Gratitude Note Pad
Write down one to three things that you are thankful for each day. The Gratitude Note Pad will help remind you to conveniently and consistently record your thoughts. This Gratitude Note Pad is easily carried in a purse or portfolio.
Hints: Avoid fixating on material items and do not dwell on things that you do not have. Refocus spiritually on what you have.
What makes you thankful?
Focus on what you have - not what you don't - by identifying and recording at least one positive thing in your life each day.
The simple act of acknowledging the things we are grateful for can help enhance our health, mood and spirit.
The Gratitude Note Pad is a great gift for cancer patients. It can help shift the focus from uneasiness and gloom towards positivity. The daily ritual of recording things we are thankful for can help patients create calmness and composure amidst uncertainty and develop a more optimistic outlook.
2. Breathe With Purpose CD
Mindful breathing can help relax you and cultivate gratitude. This gift includes the Breast Cancer Yoga CD Breathe With Purpose to get you started.
