Sensational Sunday Thanks

Sensational Sunday Thanks

This post-Thanksgiving Sunday seems like a good time to think about making Thanksgiving a regular habit.  I don’t mean the big feast, with the dressing and the turkey, but the “thanks” part.  Dancers know all about establishing habits, good and bad, and creating a Thanksgiving habit falls into the good category.

It is a simple matter of remembering to appreciate what you have, which prevents focusing on what you don’t have (bad habit category), and being thankful.  Gratitude.  Dancers know all about focusing, too.  And focusing on the positive is always better than the alternative.

Studies have shown that gratitude has beneficial effects on health, mood, sleep, and motivation, as well as many other areas (see today’s Link of the Day).

So make Thanksgiving (gratitude) a habit – every day of the year.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Secret #15p:  
“Make Thanksgiving happen more than once a year – make it a daily habit.”

Quote of the Day:
 "Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude."
- A.A. Milne
