Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and with it comes an awareness of things we are grateful for. But why wait until the holiday to feel gratitude?
Gratitude shifts your focus from what your life lacks to the abundance that is already present.
We tend to take for granted the good that is in our lives.
Research shows that daily gratitude exercises result in higher levels of alertness, enthusiasm, determination, optimism, and energy.
In addition, people who kept a gratitude journal experienced less depression and stress, were more likely to help others, exercised more regularly, and made greater progress toward achieving personal goals.
If a simple act of keeping a gratitude journal can have that much impact, wouldn’t it be worth doing?
I love gratitude. It is an integral part of my life!
