Well, the year is winding down, and Thanksgiving is just around the corner.
Many people in the U.S. love this holiday because they get time off from work to spend with friends and family, eat lots of good food and get a jumpstart on their holiday shopping.
I love Thanksgiving because of all these reasons, but there’s more to it for me.
Usually, things are crazy at work this time of year, and I spend long hours in front of my computer.
By the time Thanksgiving comes around, I’m usually VERY ready for a break (you can probably relate!). Thanksgiving gives me a time to reflect — and what else? — be thankful.
This may sound hokey, but it really inspires me to move forward with my goals. I note all of the things I’m thankful for in my life, and the stress melts away.
In fact, this works so well that I use this process throughout the year.
Being Thankful Can Help You More Ways Than You Know.
When I start to feel overwhelmed and stressed, I stop and think of ten things I’m thankful for. It helps me focus on what is truly important in my life.
Try it. You’ll be surprised at how quickly your mindset changes.
Suddenly, the frustration in dance class, looming tax payments, big meetings, and more seem less intimidating.
Thanksgiving is a time to thank those in your life who have helped you become the person you are today. It’s also a time to reflect on what’s important in life and all of the things you can be thankful for – and this is a wonderful thing.
So wonderful, in fact, that I think it’s wise to think about Thanksgiving every day. Thank the people around you and be grateful for what you have whenever possible.
This process will help you focus on what’s truly important in your life, help reduce stress, and show others that you appreciate their kindness!
With this in mind, I’d like to thank you for reading this blog.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving!
