“Gratitude is about appreciating the elements of any situation,” says Dr. Tom Pastor, a chiropractor who focuses heavily on the influence of emotions on physical conditions in his practice. “Denying negative emotions has become a part of American culture that is not serving us. It’s easy to be grateful for things that directly benefit us. It tends to be more difficult to be grateful for a struggle. If we can learn to develop the ability to be appreciative of the things that challenge us, we will be stronger and more adaptable in the long run,” he explains.
