Forgiveness: Your Health Depends on It – Hopkins Medicine Forgiveness Sundays October 27, 2019

I chose this article as this week’s Forgiveness Sundays post –  Forgiveness: Your Health Depends on It – Hopkins Medicine: https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/wellness-and-prevention/forgiveness-your-health-depends-on-it.

Whether it’s a simple spat with your spouse or long-held resentment toward a family member or friend, unresolved conflict can go deeper than you may realize—it may be affecting your physical health. The good news: Studies have found that the act of forgiveness can reap huge rewards for your health, lowering the risk of heart attack; improving cholesterol levels and sleep; and reducing pain, blood pressure , and levels of anxiety, depression and stress. And research points to an increase in the forgiveness-health connection as you age.
