Hi First name / friend!
Just because Thanksgiving week is over, doesn't mean we should stop being grateful. Sure, we can stop eating pumpkin pie and turkey (that's already something to be grateful for ;laugh)  - but studies show that people who deliberately choose to look for things in life to be thankful for are happier and healthier. 
Robert Emmons of the University of California at Davis and Michael McCullough of the University of Miami did a study in 2003 that showed being consciously grateful (keeping a journal of thanks vs. hassles in life) resulted in improved emotional and physical changes. Besides a more positive outlook and mindset, they also had 23 percent lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol and led to a 7 percent reduction in biomarkers of inflammation in patients with congestive heart failure. 
So how do we practice daily gratitude? Here are a few ideas:
1: Be less self-absorbed, and serve others. 
2: Practice flexibility of attitude and perspective. 
3: Be aware of negativity bias, or the tendency to pick out the negative in life.
4: Get specific about what you're grateful for!  
  • Try this exercise: Pick one thing you're grateful for and write 5 sentences about it. Really think about what you appreciate, and find details to support that! You'll start getting exponential returns on your gratitude practice.
