Last week we started doing group gratitude lists on the Happy Rehab Doc Facebook page! It was so much fun that I thought--why not create a group gratitude list on the blog on Thursdays?! Why Thursdays? One of my readers on Facebook (Mac) came up with the excellent alliterative title!
Gratitude lists play a major role in my life. Let's face it, it's difficult for me to play the self-pity party game when I am listing off all the things I'm grateful for!! Interestingly enough, science has shown that an attitude of gratitude is healing for body and mind! So if you want to feel happier, calmer and healthier--start making a list of things you are thankful for!!
Today I'm grateful for so many things--a conference I'm at that is making me a better doctor, a husband who is so loving and kind, the sunshine of Texas (where I am now) that is helping me pretend winter is over!! I could go on and on!
Why don't you join me? Start listing now! What are you thankful for? Leave a comment on this post to share your thankfulness with our blog community!
Remind all of us what small and big things make a difference in someone's life. Inspire us!
