Happy Thanksgiving! Guess what Thanksgiving makes us think about, besides turkey? You guessed it — gratitude! And why are we feeling so grateful? Drum roll, please…
We are thankful for the privilege of serving you. And to show our thanks, we compiled a few research-based tips for helping you feel your best every day:
Don’t be so hard on yourself.
Life can be daunting, especially when you’re faced by setbacks or frustrations, which can cloud over your entire day. But there’s a reason why it’s so hard to shake off negative moments. It’s not just you! Researchers theorize that it’s an evolutionary survival trait. We’re pretty much hard-wired to fixate on the negative; our caveman ancestors who remembered mistakes lived the longest by avoiding danger. So, how do you transcend the negativity?
Focus on the small steps.
Every little victory counts! Whether that means another day where you skipped cream in your coffee to cut out extra calories, or walking up the stairs at work rather than taking the elevator. Every moment you choose to do something healthy and positive for yourself or another, however small, deserves to be celebrated!
Shift your focus to the positive (it’s contagious!)
Research also indicates that positivity spreads like wildfire. Notice how fast you perk up when someone compliments you on a job well done? Noticing the good in others not only helps them feel great, but it is also shown to improve your sense of well-being. You can’t control all of life’s events, but you can control how you react to them, and creating a positive atmosphere around you is a wonderful small step that goes a long way toward improving your corner of the world.
