Here is a quote from the HeartMath Institute website that informs on appreciation and gratitude in compassion to benefit your lives:

“When you sincerely feel and express your appreciation/gratitude for family, friends, people you encounter, or the world around you, an interesting and profound change occurs in your heart rhythms. They become more coherent. Numerous studies by HeartMath scientists and others have demonstrated this in a wide range of groups. In fact, by experiencing what HeartMath calls qualities of the heart, such as appreciation, compassion, deep love, kindness and care, you can reset your overall mental, emotional and physiological coherence – all of the body’s systems and lift your vibration.”

Part of practicing the liberation and freedom peoples include acts of compassion and gratitude, this is something we can all apply in our daily lives.
