Gratitude and Thanks 

Everyday Im thankful quote

 It's Thanks And Giving Time!


 Welcome to the holidays. November-January, a time when ham, turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, and pumpkin pie can bring family, friends (aka chosen family), and even strangers together to express gratitude. Yippie, Yippie, Yay! Yay! This time of year is beautiful, but ... for a lot of people, the holidays are the only reminder to express thankfulness, and as the holiday ends, so does the gratefulness. 


       The Holiday Spirit Should Be Every day. 
     There Is Always Something To Be Thankful For.

Living an "attitude of gratitude" is good for your health. There is an extensive amount of research that proves leading a grateful lifestyle will lead to a happier, less stressed, healthier you. 


Robert A. Emmons, professor of psychology at UC Davis, says, "Clinical trials indicate that the practice of gratitude can have dramatic and lasting effects in a person's life. It can lower blood pressure, improve immune function and facilitate more efficient sleep."

Health Benefits of Being Grateful

With that in mind, here's a brilliant idea to help you live in a more thankful way. Each day or at least once a week, or even just once a month, express your gratitude toward a cause or someone that is dear to you.  


1)  Donate as little as a 1.00 to someone in need or a cause that you believe in or spend a few hours volunteering. 


2) Create a cd or playlist of inspirational songs or messages to someone who needs cheer.


3) Tell someone why you love and appreciate them. 


4) Surprise a co-worker with a cup of coffee, a note of praise, or lunch.


5) Give someone a hug.


6) Do someone a free favor. 


7) Give a compliment.


8) Say thank you. 


9)  Mentor.


10) Send a handwritten letter. 

There are many, many, many ways to express gratitude. Keep a gratitude journal for daily reminders of the little things and new ways you can express thankfulness to the people that make your life a little better.
