Gratitude in 2020

This year has been unprecedented in so many ways. For many people stress levels have gone through the roof. Managing day to day life has shifted and we are all still finding our bearings.

As the holidays approach, we are bombarded with the word “Gratitude" everywhere we look. Faux-rustic signs, t-shirts, and television commercials all remind us to count our blessings and be grateful, grateful, grateful. It’s easy to tune those messages out, but gratitude is essential. As we enter this season of holiday obligations, we can find ourselves more stressed and emotional than usual. Gratitude means focusing on the good in each situation as well as in those we love.

Gratitude has physical benefits; it is actually good for us!

Research shows that when we are able to identify and focus on feelings of sincere gratitude, we experience benefits including better health, improved sleep, and increased feelings of happiness and satisfaction. Start each day this holiday season by writing in a journal or just sitting quietly and making a mental list of the things you are grateful for. Begin with the things that are most important to you, such as your family, your friends, your job, your health, and your home. Notice and express gratitude for those things that you might not even think of as privileges, such as your abilities to walk, hear, see, and more. Remember that there are people who would sacrifice anything to gain that which you might take for granted.

I wish you a blessed and beautiful Holiday season.
