'Tis The Season To Be Thankful'


Did you realize that being thankful has many benefits for you???  It has been shown that people who regularly practice feeling thankful have a leg up when it comes to their health.  Thankful people:

Take better care of themselves physically and mentally

Engage in more protective health behaviors

Get more regular exercise

Eat a healthier diet

Have improved mental alertness

Cope better with stress and daily challenges

Feel happier and more optimistic

Have stronger immune systems

Maintain a brighter view of the future

There are several things to help you get into the gratitude attitude.  First and foremost is to remember to thank God for everything that has been provided for you.  You can also focus your attention outward, be mindful of what you have, and perhaps keep a gratitude journal.
