The holiday season is upon us and while it can be a time of joy and togetherness, it can also be a stressful time for many. Managing stress is key to being happy and healthy, year round. Thanksgiving is a reminder of one of the most powerful ways to help anyone focus on the positive in life. Not just giving thanks, but really cultivating gratitude has been shown to have a very positive impact on people’s lives and relationships. By consciously acknowledging the goodness in one’s life, people can feel less lonely and more connected to others and the world.

The team at Valenti International selected this article as it can help people be more successful in romantic, professional, and personal lives. Cultivating gratitude is made easier when you take clear actions and incorporate them into your life. Physically writing thank you notes is an example of making the concept of giving thanks a reality. It forces you to really think about the things you are grateful for. The more time people can spend recognizing and appreciating the positive and god in their lives, the less time they focus on the negative and increase their stress.
