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.
It’s not one 60-minute conversation.
