Never let the things you want, make you forget the things you have. Happy Thanksgiving.
7 Things to Be Thankful For This Thanksgiving
We all know that Thanksgiving is a time for gratitude, bringing families together to eat, drink and be thankful. But did you know that being thankful all-year-long is actually good for your health?
Scientific studies indicate that practicing gratitude improves mood, overall health and may increase your life by ten years. There is always something to be thankful for. If you need some reasons, consider these seven things to be thankful for this Thanksgiving:
#1. You can read this list.
Seriously! 17% of the world’s adult population is illiterate. Give thanks for this beautiful ability and all the joy it brings you on a daily basis.
#2. You have friends and family who love you.
Even if you don’t always agree. Even if they drive you batty, your family loves you. And chances are, the same is true of your friends. Take time out today to be thankful for their presences in your life.
#3. You have access to clean water.
Over 700 million people don’t have access to clean, potable water. If you’re living in the U.S., you’re probably among the lucky folks who do consistently have access to clean drinking water. Take a sip and give thanks.
#4. You can eat when you’re bored.
Don’t ever take for granted the fact that you likely have a fridge full of food and a pantry full of dry goods right now. This Thanksgiving, be extra thankful for the bounty that you have every single day.
#5. You have the world wide web at your fingertips.
It’s pretty amazing that, if you ever have a question about literally anything, all it takes is a quick Google search to satiate your curiosity. That said, this Thanksgiving, take a break from your screens for a little while and experience the joy that is the present moment.
#6. You’ve experienced pain.
Ironically enough, yes, you should be grateful for any pain that you’ve felt in your life. It’s like they say, “What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger.” Give thanks for the strength that has pulled you through your darkest hours.
#7. You’re alive.
And that’s pretty fantastic in and of itself. Breathe in. Breathe out. Savor how gorgeous life can really be and always be thankful.
