What Are You Thankful For? How To Manage Stress With Gratitude

Thankful & Grateful

The Thanksgiving holiday is fast approaching. While the holidays give us so many reasons to be thankful, it can also be a time of great stress. Not to worry, there is a way to manage stress around the holidays and every day with a regular gratitude practice. When you start to feel stress creeping up on you, give this short and easy practice by top Farmington chiropractor Kenneth Wingrove a try and see how it can change your mindset!

What is a gratitude practice? Gratitude is the act of feeling and communicating appreciation for the people, circumstances and even material possessions in our lives. It allows us to be present and grateful for what we have, rather than focusing on what we might be lacking.

Farmington Chiropractor Explains How To Manage Stress

Next time you start to feel stressed or anxious, pause for a moment, close your eyes, take one long, slow, deep breath and think about 3 to 5 things you are thankful for right now...it could be your dog, your spouse, your kids, your job, or just the sun shining on your face. There are so many things to be grateful for that we take for granted every single day. Taking time for a gratitude practice helps us to be mindful of all the things that are good and bring us joy in our lives.

This is a quick and easy practice that you can do anywhere...just don't close your eyes if you are driving! If you want to take it to the next level, call, text or write a quick note to someone you are grateful for and let them know just how much you appreciate them. It will make them feel like a million bucks, and it sure feels good to make someone else feel good!

What are you thankful for today? Give it a try and let us know how it works for you! From the Desert Hills Chiropractic team, we hope you have a safe and happy Thanksgiving full of all the things you are grateful for.
