Give Thanks, Get HealthyReply
Giving thanks can be good for your health. Research has shown that people who write lists of things they're grateful for spend more time exercising and sleep better than those who don't. "Gratitude is like putting on a new pair of glasses," says Charles Shelton, a psychologist. "We see things in different ways." Like exercise, gratitude has to become a habit to work. And like exercise, it gets easier. Try it: Keep a journal and pray. Write what you're grateful for on index cards and toss them in a blessings jar to read over when you're blue. Or put the jar on the dining table to spread your gratitude and good health.

The Prophet (s.a.w.) used to stand (in prayer) or pray till both his feet or legs swelled. He was asked why (he offered such an unbearable prayer) and he said, "should I not be a thankful slave." Sahih Bukhari, Volume 2, Book 21, Number 230, narrated by Al-Mughira
