Be Thankful for the Post-Thanksgiving Letdown
The last of the turkey has been eaten.
The final bites of stuffing, cranberry salad, and pumpkin pie have been taken.
The endless stream of football games has tapered off.
The feeling of being “over-stuffed” has finally gone away.
And the ever-present stream of reminders about how important “living in gratitude” is to your life and health has slowed to a trickle.
Don’t worry about the lack of turkey, stuffing and pie.
Don’t worry about there being fewer football games to watch.
But DO WORRY about forgetting to feel and express gratitude.
A life in which you actively recognize what you are grateful for and express that gratitude to others has been scientifically proven to improve your life and your happiness.
Check out this interesting video (An Experiment in Gratitude | The Science of Happiness ) from Soul Pancake to learn more about the "how" and "why" of expressing gratitude.
And then …. Go Forth and Express Gratitude!
