Gratitude The Opposite of Worry & Stress
So, there you have it. Appreciation is the opposite of worry, because it decreases the levels of cortisol in your body while releasing instead cortisol’s antidotes (dopamine and serotonin) that create a feeling of peace and joy and the motive to engage dynamically in life. Worry, on the other hand, makes you more miserable and is harmful to your health. As you can see for yourself, appreciation wins on points.
