Tips for Focusing on What Counts
Dr. Dale V. Atkins, May 2015

Counting Sheep.
Counting Slights.
Counting Blessings.

What counts?

What works best to help ensure the healthiest life we can have? A restorative sleep? A kinder heart? A focused brain?

Reviewing all of the people who "wronged" us, who hurt us, who "dissed" us will not lead to a positive or healthy outcome. It is more likely to contribute to bitterness and loneliness because cortisol (stress hormone) is released and re-released.

So instead of counting slights:

Count Blessings. Focusing on the good in our lives gives us an opportunity to open up to other positive experiences because we "set our minds" in a gratitude mode as the endorphins flood our body.
