A Serving of Gratitude

Today is Thanksgiving in the United States, a time for us to reflect on our blessings and express gratitude.

Here is a great article from the NY Times which explains how gratitude can actually make us happier and healthier:

"Cultivating an “attitude of gratitude” has been linked to better health, sounder sleep, less anxiety and depression, higher long-term satisfaction with life and  kinder behavior toward others, including romantic partners."

I find that it's helpful to be specific when communicating thanks - whether written or in person.  And if you're new to gratitude, practice it in small doses.
