Share Gratitude this Holiday Season

Spread Goodness to Others

Research shows that expressing gratitude has a wide range of benefits, including:

  • Reducing stress and anxiety
  • Boosting mood
  • Re-focusing on what you have versus what you lack
  • Strengthening your immune system
  • Improving sleep

Sharing gratitude is one way to lift our spirits this holiday season and can be easily built into your family’s holiday plans:

Shop a local business in person or online. Personally thank the store owner and employees for their time and investment in your community.

Write a thank-you note. Let someone who has made an impact on your life know how much they are appreciated.

Keep a gratitude log or journal. Have a set time each day to write down 1 or 2 things you are grateful for, and share them with your family.
