Forgive to improve your well-being

Forgiveness is the releasing of negative and promotion of positive thoughts, feelings, and behaviours toward someone who hurt you. Recent studies indicate that forgiveness can positively impact personal health and well-being as well as personal and professional relationships. Forgiving others can reduce your stress, improve your health and cognitive function. If you forgive, you’ll become more productive, healthier and happier. Think about it: if you don’t forgive, who are you hurting? It’s more likely that holding grudges will punish you than the perpetrators. So why not forgive them and move on to freedom?
