As a guy with one foot planted in the realm of ancestral living and the other foot planted in the realm of modern biohacking, my own personal morning routine is a complete mash-up of the woo-woo and the scientific. (https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/mymorning) I do yoga and core foundation moves with a photobiomodulation device attached to my skull and I make coffee with a structured water device and medicinal mushrooms. But perhaps the most perfect example of marrying the woo-woo to the scientific is my daily gratitude routine. Each morning, I wake up, roll over, strap on a bluetooth-enabled heart rate monitor and open a smartphone app to measure my nervous system strength, and at the same time, grab the weathered gratitude journal from my bed stand and begin to pen down exactly what it is that I am grateful for that day. As I engage in this daily gratitude practice, I not only feel an intense sense of well-being and positive emotions wash over my body but I can – using the heart rate monitor and smartphone app – self-quantify a remarkable increase in the strength and resilience of my nervous system and the tone of my vagus nerve (the incredibly important nerve that travels throughout the entire human body to innervate nearly every organ). However, the benefits of daily gratitude go far beyond simply feeling good or experiencing a significant increase in nervous system strength and resilience. In today’s article, just published here (https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/CGJBlog), you're going discover exactly what gratitude is, why gratitude is one of the most prized and protected parts of my day, four astonishing physiological and psychological benefits of a daily gratitude practice, and step-by-step instructions for my exact morning personal gratitude journaling method. #bengreenfield #love #devotionalstructure #zeroguesswork #dailylife #reading #gratitude #calming #peaceful #morning #GreaterAccountabilitytoGod #overallhealth #Increasedhappiness #strongerimmunesystem #Improved sleep
