This Thanksgiving or holiday get-together, we invite you to practice this simple gratitude-cultivating practice with your loved ones: Before dinner, place five kernels of corn (or pennies, buttons, or even pebbles) at each place setting and set an empty basket in the middle of the table. Once everyone is seated, go around the table and give each person a turn to drop a token into the basket as they share one thing for which they are thankful. Keep going around the table until everyone has discarded all their tokens. This isn’t only an icebreaker or a hokey tradition, it may profoundly affect everyone at the table’s mental, emotional, and social well-being. A growing pool of research is supporting the finding that being grateful is great for us. Here are some amazing benefits of gratitude that scientists have discovered. Click the link for more.
Do you roll out of bed in the morning and mindlessly slink through your social media feed, or is their purpose in your actions? The way you wake up determines the tone for the rest of you day.
Over the last several decades, our morning routine has shifted from being a sacred ritual to a hyper-speed race out the front door.
It’s difficult to stay calm and grounded with a high dose of caffeine coursing through our veins, blasting music and driving to work in rush hour.
