Giving thanks is more than just a courtesy. It’s actually good for you. Practicing gratitude has been linked with better health, improved well-being, and increased resilience in the face of stress. One way to start incorporating gratitude into your life is to keep a gratitude journal. Each day, write down a few things you’re thankful for. They can be big or small, serious or silly. Just make sure they’re things that genuinely make you happy.
Not sure what to write? Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- Your family and friends
- Your home
- Your job
- Your favorite possessions
- A recent accomplishment
- A fun experience you had
- A kind act someone did for you
You don’t have to wait until Thanksgiving to start giving thanks. Give it a try today and see how much better you feel.
