It's Thanksgiving week and we all know what that means. Seeing family and friends that we miss, preparing and enjoying great holiday dishes and giving thanks.
I recently read of a Harvard Medical School study stating that psychology research has found "gratitude is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness." Expressing gratitude can lift our spirits and those around us. It allows us to look outside of ourselves and make connections with what is positive in our world and the positive things we see in other people.
Trouble is, while you're prepping for that fantastic meal, or picking up those relatives at the airport and trying to maneuver around the crazy holiday shopping traffic, gratitude can take a backseat.
