Hands down, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, not because of the delicious food, but because there is no need to be worried about gifts and overdecorating the house,and I get to focus on the people who sit around my table and realize how grateful I am for their presence in my life.
Gratitude has some wonderful health benefits. Being grateful can strengthen the immune system, boost your well-being, increase your feelings of belonging and connection. Building your appreciation for life can improve your heart and your relationships. Writing in a gratitude journal can improve your quality of sleep.
If you are in need of boosting your gratitude muscle, please join me at a free event in Parker Library, where 6 speakers will share their wisdom on how gratitude is important in their lives. I am one of those speakers and I will be speaking at 4:15. Click here to learn more about the event and the other speakers.
In the mean time, please comment and tell me what you are most grateful for in your life! I am grateful for the times I am most aware of my beingness, the times when just showing up in who I am can bring healing to others!
