A year to be thankful
Did you know that focusing on the positive things in your life may benefit your mental and physical health?
Each day, make the time to express at least one thing you are grateful for—this can be something from your past, the present, or optimism for the future. It can be as simple as recognizing the sun is shining and the warmth it provides. Appreciating time in the kitchen cooking a meal with your kids, focusing on the laughter, not the mess. Despite the stress of your job, acknowledging your talents and strengths.
As a new year is upon us, purchase a special journal, or start a document on your computer or phone, and pen or type one gratitude entry (or more) each and every day. Be sure to date the entry as well.
Whenever you are overwhelmed, or negative thoughts and feelings are taking control, read some of your entries. They're sure to remind you that there is much to be grateful for.
It’s time to live a life of gratitude.
