This time of the year many of us fear the inevitable “watch what you eat during the holidays” speech, especially from doctors. Well I’m skipping that sermon to talk about your mind.
Many people see their emotional health slide during the holidays and that’s an important part of being healthy too. Even if you have the blues this Thanksgiving you can still develop an attitude of gratitude.
Gratitude allows you to count your blessings and a number of studies have shone that a positive attitude positively effects physical, emotional, spiritual, and relational health.
So here’s my prescription for you. Take a few minutes each day to write down the five things you’re thankful for. Don’t be a turkey just try it. This simple exercise quite simply will change your Thanksgiving and the rest of your life.
