Make a choice to forgive

It’s not time to forget about an event that may have hurt you in the past until you forgive. Time might mend wounds but to heal in a healthy way, you do need to find a way to forgive. Because it may be affecting your physical health.

Today, your goal is to forgive someone who has wronged you. It could’ve been something small that happened yesterday or it could be a long-term struggle you’ve been facing for some time.

Depending on its significance, it may take longer than a day but the positive effects for your health can start when you start the process.

Studies have shown that the act of forgiveness can reap huge rewards for your health – lowering the risk of heart attack, improving cholesterol levels, and reducing levels of anxiety, depression, and stress.

Today, research some coping mechanisms, reflect on what you’re holding on to and why, reach out to those who can shed light for you on an issue, or simply move past it and forgive.

It may change your health.
