Age-Proofing Your Brain – Spirituality, 2

Emerging data point to a connection between spirituality—the spirit with which you live life—and energy. In her best-selling book Anatomy of the Spirit, Dr. Carolyn Myss pointed out: “Our bodies thrive when our spirits thrive . . . One’s spiritual thoughts and activities are inseparable from other aspects of life . . . From an energy point of view, every choice that enhances our spirits strengthens our energy field.” M. Scott Peck, author of The Road Less Traveled believed that those who are seeking for but unable to find a desired spiritual life, may substitute an addictive behavior for the spiritual connection they crave but cannot develop.  Spirituality and gratitude may be linked. In his book Thanks! Robert Emmons points out that people who practice grateful thinking reap many emotional, physical, and interpersonal benefits. They tend to take better care of themselves and engage in more protective health behaviors like physical and mental exercise, healthy eating, and regular physical examinations.
