Something to make you smile

The festive season is now well and truly upon us. For some it is a time of celebrations and switching off. For others it is more challenging time.

No matter what your take on this time of year there is one thing that we can all do and that is to be grateful. Gratitude is something we can all exercise no matter what our circumstances are. It doesn’t matter what is going on for you right now, there are always things you can be grateful for. And this is a wonderful time of year to do so.

Being grateful can make you happy. It’s true. By focusing on the things you are grateful for, happiness often follows. Focusing on what you have rather than on what you don’t have helps us re-evaluate our situations, to see them in a fresh light.

So my request to you today is to make a list of 3 things you are grateful for. Write them down to make it even more powerful. Share your list with somebody else, your partner or a friend. Ask them to do the same.

And when you are expressing your gratitude, notice how you feel inside.

I wish you all love, happiness and good health this festive season.
