Forgive for the Health of It

Forgive for the Health of It

Recent studies prove what Mom always said:  Holding a grudge hurts you more than anyone else.

Nursing grudges affects body and mind, while forgiveness speeds healing.  Replacing resentment with compassion decreases odds for chronic pain and life-threatening maladies, such as heart disease.  Forgiveness also boosts emotional well-being and lowers the risk of stress-related ailments.

Sound too good to be true?  Conventional medicine tends to downplay how strongly emotions affect disease and pain.  Yet doctors of chiropractic argue that nothing could be further from the truth.  A positive frame of mind is inseparable from physical and emotional health.

We know that holding a grudge only punishes ourselves.  Also, practically speaking, grudges never guarantee that offenders will be remorseful or behave considerately next time.  Practice forgiveness techniques to gain inner peace.  If you still feel a cloud of anger looming, ask for a recommendation to a counselor in the area.  No doubt, your body and mind will thank you.Dr. Barbara Smith
