“When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.” -Lao Tzu

Thanksgiving gives us all the opportunity to do something that is a healthy option every day of the year: Focusing our minds, hearts and spirits on, and expressing, what we’re most grateful for.

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays and there are a myriad of reasons why we should strive for gratitude as a daily practice.

Research continues to show some of the benefits of expressing grateful, include improved immune systems, to feelings of unity coupled with higher team morale in the workplace.

There are several ways to practice gratitude daily, i.e., gratitude journals, blessings lists, a daily calendar of gratitude, sharing gratitude at the dinner table, expressing gratitude in a written note, thanking the people who offer you service, i.e., the barrister, the boutique owner, the cleaners, the gas attendant, ; and last but certainly not least, women can practice gratitude by planning a girl time celebration (girls night out) to express gratefulness, rather than male bashing or venting about what’s not working in relationships or in dating matters.

So how do you practice gratitude and make it apart of your daily practice?
