January is National Thank You month!

National Thank You Month

Did you know that having an attitude of gratitude can actually make you healthier and happier? Several studies have been done on Gratitude and what they've found is that people suffer less from depression when they're thankful. They sleep better, are less anxious and are considerably more satisfied with their lives.

How can you be more Thankful?

Each evening either at dinner, or before you go to bed, think of 5 things that happened that day that you're thankful for. It could be the person that held the door for you or how the lady taking your order at lunch didn't get made when you changed your mind!

Each day make a point of doing something thoughtful specifically for someone. Kind of the "pay it forward" thing.

Let's Celebrate National Thank You Month by reaching out to those around us and let them know how much we appreciate them and the things that they do for us!

Lucy - I had read about how gratitude was so good for your health and overall well being. It seemed to make sense to combine the two here with the Thank you month.

Maggie - Glad you enjoyed it.

Connie--I will start my comment wtih "Thank You" for being my ActiveRain friend. I always know that your comments are written from the heart.  There is nothing 'canned' about your comments.  I especially  appreciated your comments about my mother and sister.  Thank you.

Kathy - Really I had never heard of it but it's going on my calender.

Joni - It's the little things that make life nice. Just thinking about gratitude makes me happy.

Mary - We don't build friendships with canned comments. I don't comment if that's what I'm feeling. Thank you too. :)

I was profoundly thankful when I did my year-end letter to family and fridpends. That feeling has not left. Prperhaos I should simply send them a card thanking them for being there for me.

National Thank You Month, I had no idea.  Over the last couple of weeks I have tried to get rid of some drama that is surrounding my business - so this was a very needed read. Thank you!

I love that.  "An attitude for gratitude"  Most people don't appreciate what they have until after it is gone.

Donna - You really have learned the attitude of Gratitude the hard way!

DeeDee - It hit me the same way! LOVE IT!

Doug - Wow that's over the top. Thank you so much. I'm humbled by such a kind remark. :)

Conrad - You're exactly right. I think it's so easy getting caught up in the negative of the day we forget how many good things happen and how good our lives really are.
