This year, we’re thankful for…

Well, it’s been quite a week at Heights HQ.

Our Crowdfunding page went live on Wednesday, and within 20 minutes, we’d passed our £1million target—setting a new record, the fastest-ever fund for a health and wellness company.

So… yeah, we’re feeling all kinds of grateful, humbled, excited, overwhelmed, and like we might need to have a small lie down.

The support from near and far has been just incredible, and we are beyond excited to take this opportunity to make braincare mainstream. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

How gratitude is good for your brain

The practice of gratitude is simply the act of mindfully being thankful. Every evening in a journal, or using an app, write down three things you’re grateful for. You can try to get specific about why you’re grateful for that particular thing, but start with a simple thanks, and reap the benefits from there.

5 reasons to say thank you
  • Being grateful makes you nicer. In this study from 2012, people with higher gratitude ratings were less likely to retaliate in negative situations, were more sensitive and less likely to be vengeful.
  • 10 weeks of writing in a gratitude journal can boost happiness up to 25%.
  • Studies on gratefulness have shown upswings in self-esteem—as the more appreciative you are, the more you are able to accept appreciation.
  • Gratitude can make you feel more positive—which has plenty of brain-benefits of its own.
  • Writing in a gratitude journal for 15 minutes before bed can help you sleep better and for longer.

Final Thoughts

Thank you for being on the journey with us so far.

Just reading this email to the end, means your brain can thank you for taking care of it—ultimate selfcare.

If you want to treat yourself even further, and haven’t considered trying Heights - the code above and our Trustpilot reviews may convince you to take your next step.

A final thought on gratitude: we're wired to want more. New clothes, more money, better everything. The issue is - if you can't appreciate what you already have - you won't feel any better having those things either. This is why practicing gratitude can be so impactful.

So whatever you have, I hope you find time to appreciate it, and more importantly - yourself.

Until next week tribe, take care
