Gratitude can be really hard. Amidst the mess and little disasters of day-to-day life, we don’t always remember to stop and say “thanks.” But what if gratitude could actually improve your health? Research says that it does. Grateful people are often healthier, happier, and more satisfied with their lives. Don’t believe me? Try it for yourself. Keep a journal and write down one thing you’re thankful for at the end of every day. In a month, look back at everything you’ve written. I guarantee the results will change your perspective on a few things. To get you started, I’ve decided to list a few things that I, as a college student, am thankful for this holiday season. Feel free to add your own!This is the time of year when we’re forced to spend loads of time with those related to us. This can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on your family dynamic, but I’d encourage you to put it in perspective either way. Friends will come and go, but your family will be in your life forever. That’s an easier pill to swallow if you find a way to appreciate them.I don’t know about you, but there’s something special about walking around at night and seeing houses and storefronts aglow. I usually have at least one string in my dorm room, if not multiple. This holiday season, find a place with plenty of lights and just walk around for a little while.
