Luxury Senior Apartment Community in Manalapan, N.J., Shares 7 Tips for Employing Gratitude

Adult community providing independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing and memory care near Staten Island, N.Y.,  suggests ways for embracing gratefulness

MANALAPAN, N.Y. –  Gratitude can play a vital role in one’s well-being, posits the Villas luxurious apartment community for seniors in Manalapan, N.J.

The act of feeling and expressing gratitude has been linked to many health benefits, such as: Decreasing stress, lowering blood pressure, improving sleep, strengthening immune function and promoting general happiness, say experts at the Villas.

The posh healthy-living community, a short distance from Staten Island, N.Y., suggests people embrace gratefulness by following these seven tips:  

  1. Spend five to 15 minutes thinking about, or writing down, things you feel grateful for at the end of each day. Set an alarm to remind you to do it daily. 
  2. The practice works well at night: Do it immediately after, laying down in bed, or upon sitting down to have dinner. Consider regularly sharing your gratefulness with others at your dinner table. 
  3. Find a spot within each day to appreciate gratitude.
  4. Be open to gratitude for basic things, such as food, air and home, as well as people, places and experiences. Acknowledge that gratitude can be inspired by small, or otherwise anticipated events, such as: Finding a parking spot, arriving to your destination in a safe and timely manner, or discovering a new bloom on your plant. Feelings of gratitude can also be appreciated for prominent milestones or experiences, such as the birth of a new baby, a vacation, or a personal accomplishment.
  5. As you list each thing you are grateful for, explore more and reflect on your feelings. What specifically brings you joy? Imagine how your life would be without this thing/person/place/experience. See how long you can sit with these joyful, grateful feelings before moving on. 
  6. Try to feel gratitude for things or people you don’t like. It may shift your perspective.
  7. Feel gratitude for yourself; be appreciative of your body, mind, abilities, strengths, gifts, and obstacles you have overcome.
