Description

If you are in the States, we are on the cusp of the Holiday season, kicking off with Thanksgiving in just a few days.



For me, the Holidays throughout the year are moments to step into gratitude.  Not just in a little "thank you for that gift," but in a gratitude for being alive.  For being here.  For experiencing life.



Each morning, while walking the neighborhood with my dogs, Ziggy and Clementine, I reflect on 5 things for which I am grateful.  That starts my day with an attempt to shift my attention to thankfulness, to gratitude.



Granted, some days, that feeling quickly evaporates when the work piles up.



But I try to remember to be grateful on a daily basis.



How about you?



Did you know that research shows how simple gratitude habits can re-wire the brain... away from fear and threat?  Away from depression and anxiety?  Just by thinking with gratitude.  Just by focusing on things for which you are grateful.



In this episode of the Thriveology Podcast, I discuss the power of gratitude to shift your thinking and re-wire your brain... just in time for a day we set aside to be particularly Thankful.



Know that I am thankful for you, my reader/listener.  Wishing you the best of Thanksgivings!
