Reflect on your present blessings, on which every man has many, not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some. — Charles Dickens
Admittedly the turkey can reshape our waistline but, no, that is not what I have in mind here. What I am referring to is the neuroscience of giving thanks, also known as gratitude. This is an approach that has the power to reshape your well-being!
When was the last time you turned on the shower and praised the miracle of running water? In all seriousness, take a moment and identify the many comforts you have in life. Appreciate the big and the small blessings for which you can/should be grateful for.
Like any skill, gratitude takes practice. Try it! Count your blessings. Jot them down. Think of as many things as you can to be thankful for right now.
Miracles are everywhere, all the time, waiting to be plucked by our awareness and appreciated. Be amazed by how much goodness surrounds you.
Life is a gift…so enjoy each day of it!
