Gratitude is Good for Your Health

Gratitude is Good for Your Health
As Thanksgiving rings near, we are reminded to count our blessings. This can be difficult to do with the hustle and bustle of the holidays (so many meals to prepare, decorations to display, gifts to buy!). As we make our way through the season, it is important to take time to step back and reflect on all we have to be thankful for.
Having so many meals to prepare means we are able to feed our family. All the decorations to display means we have a place that provides us shelter and safety. Having gifts to buy means we have people in our lives to love and celebrate. Food, shelter, and loved ones…it does not get much better than that.
We invite you to take this feeling of gratitude and embrace it well beyond the season. Research has shown that individuals who are more grateful in their day-to-day are happier, sleep better, work harder, experience fewer health problems, and communicate more in their relationships.

Here are some ways you can foster gratitude:

If you or a loved one needs help during the holiday season, please know that help is available. Our Behavioral Health Team is here for you. We provide a wide range of services including psychiatry and counseling.
