Gratefulness is good for your health

BK, Nicole Kohler
BK, Nicole Kohler

Thanksgiving may be behind us, but gratefulness is no less meaningful in our daily lives.  Our wellness commentator, Velvete Womack, the owner of the Fire and Ice Spa in Commerce, reflects on a recent University of California-San Diego study that showed that gratefulness improved the condition of people with heart problems in their 60s, not only their heart health, but in general ways such as better sleep and a reduction of stress.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
