Creative Holiday Gratitude
With the holidays fully upon us, it's a great time to look at what makes us thankful
Studies have found that practicing gratitude daily is ideal for our minds, bodies and spirits.
What a wonderful time for us to cultivate and express gratitude for your family, friends and colleagues.
Below are some creative ways you can show your loved ones and people surrounding you how much you appreciate them:
Family or Friends
Is someone you care about stretched thin with parenting and/or a busy job? Offer to do some work for them to lighten their load. Mow their lawn, shovel their driveway/walk, bring them dinner, run some errands for them or watch their kids for an evening!
Pick a morning, and as soon as you arrive at your desk, send out individual emails of all your closest colleagues. Tell them what you appreciate about them and why you're grateful to have them on your team. Go into detail! This will not only make their day, but it will give you a feel-good boost, too!
Surprise your love with a pre-planned date night. Make all the arrangements in advance, such as a restaurant reservation or tickets to an event. Let your partner know you planned a special night together so you can show them how much you love and appreciate them. They'll feel like a million $$ - and your relationship may be stronger for it!
Speaking of gratitude, I'd like to personally thank you for visiting my website today and reading this post. It means so much to me!!
I hope you and your loved ones have a safe and happy holiday season, full of creative gratitude!
