What are you thankful for today? Whether it’s your job, your health, or your family and friends, it is always important to give thanks for what matters the most to you. Gratitude is one of the most important foods needed to help nourish your mind, body, and soul. Yet, it’s only normal that with your busy life you might get caught up with all your daily responsibilities and stresses that you may find yourself complaining more often than giving thanks. Gratitude is a powerful practice that helps shifts your attention towards the things in life that you appreciate and it helps you gain better control of your problems to appreciate both the good and bad aspects of life. We all have several things to be thankful for and we should rejoice our blessing daily. Being grateful makes sense of our past, helps bring peace and joy for today, and creates a brighter hopeful vision for tomorrow.

Take a few minutes today and every day to give thanks! And take a look at Dr. Cynthia Thaik’s recent article on the Huffington post, “Gratitude Strengthens, the Heart, Mind, Body and Soul”
