Thank You Cards

Thank You Cards

Thanksgiving is just around the corner. This is a holiday that encourages us to be grateful for what we have. (The actual history of the holiday is a little controversial. I will let you read about that on your own.)

What I do like about this day is taking the time to realize all that we have. More importantly, it is a fantastic time to be thankful for all the people in our lives. Our lives are enriched when we share our time with the people we care so much about.

Sending a “thank you” card seems to be an etiquette that is disappearing as technology is becoming more present. It is easier to send a text than an email, and an email is easier that writing a handwritten note.

Technology is supposed to make our lives more efficient with our time, but not meant to replace the few personal touches we have left.

This Thanksgiving, send a thank you card to all those people you care about and tell them why they mean so much to you! Your holiday will be more meaningful when you focus on others.

Being Grateful

The holiday may only come once a year, but there is actual scientific evidence that shows that a person who is grateful, can be happier and healthier! Thanksgiving Day is a reminder of how we should be living every day.

Here is a link to a short and informative article about the benefits of being grateful.

7 Scientifically Proven Benefits of Gratitude by Amy Morin

Start a journal for bedtime to write down why you are grateful each day. This takes only a few minutes but the results and benefits are huge. Plus, we all have those blank journals just waiting to be used!

Amy is also the author of 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do. This book has helped me on my journey of personal growth!
