We often hear that it’s important to live with gratitude, but with everything that is happening in our daily lives, how many of us actually stop to do this? As we’re preparing to celebrate Thanksgiving here in the United States, we thought it would be timely to take a pause and reflect on what we’re grateful for. We also reveal what the holiday means to us, and share some research that we’ve discovered on the benefits of a consistent gratitude practice.
