This week’s Positive Thursday is the mega-thankful day, Thanksgiving. It’s a reminder for us to reconnect with living in gratitude. Research has shown that feeling grateful supports a more positive attitude and relieves stress because the brain releases a surge of dopamine when we are thankful.
So in honor of Thanksgiving, let’s release some dopamine today and focus on what we are grateful for in our lives right now!
Below are nine things I’m thankful for today:
1. Starbucks holiday drinks,
2. Days off work,
3. Orange, yellow and red leaves,
4. Counting my blessings,
5. Countdowns until I see my sisters in person,
6. Coffee dates = therapy sessions with friends,
7. My ex-college roommate being in town,
8. Moments like the photograph on this page, and
9. Being glad to be alive.
Today is not a day to be cooped up in front of a computer, instead, it’s a day to recognize what you’re thankful for–and then live out that thankfulness.
