The Thanksgiving holiday gives us a nudge to take time to reflect on what we are grateful for that year, but science proves there are many reasons to practice gratitude all year.
Having a gratitude practice where we pause to acknowledge the good in life is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness – helping people feel more positive, improving health, coping with adversity and building strong relationships.
With things going haywire like they have in 2020, we need gratitude more than ever. To improve wellness, cultivate gratitude regularly by sending a thank-you note/ text, keeping a journal, praying and meditating.
