With the holiday season at hand and the weather growing colder, it always serves as a the perfect reminder to be thankful for what you have in your life, and to pass that nice warm positive energy on to those around you. Countless studies show that gratitude can extend life span, increase happiness, immunity, optimism and make for a healthy heart all while depleting your stress levels! All it takes is a few minutes each day, just try and think or write about three things in your life that you are very grateful or lucky to have. What about family, friends, loved ones? Your home or your health? That delicious meal you had? That homemade apple pie mom made you? The beautiful sunset, sunrise, stars, waves crashing? It can be anything! Don’t stop there, pass off the kindness to those around you, hold the door for someone, let some one in your driving lane, pass on a smile, or tell some one you appreciate them. Help spread that warm spirit it can be contagious and extremely rewarding. I wish you and those close to you a happy holiday and a prosperous and healthy new year!
