Now with the holiday season upon us, it is more important than ever that we fully take care of ourselves; specifically, our emotional well-being. Because this time of the year is historically known to bring back feelings of sadness and depression which may manifest in the form of repressed and subconscious longings for our loved ones who may no longer be physically in our lives or reminders of non-tangible things we do not have and feelings of just not having enough.
Today I would like to offer you a remedy to overcoming these negative emotions. It is one simple word: GRATITUDE! For the next 30 days, I invite you to write down three things you are grateful for each day and review the list frequently to remain mindful of why there is a reason to smile and be thankful. Stay optimistic and keep in mind the ability to breath daily or to witness the beautiful branches on the trees is truly a gift and something to be thankful for. This holiday season allow gratitude to lead the way as you enjoy the festive lights and holiday music as well as great food.
Seasons Greetings and Happy Holidays!
