How to Be Happier, 365 Days a Year (Not just during Thanksgiving)

Have you come out of your Post- Thanksgiving, turkey induced coma yet?! I did my best not to overdo it on Thanksgiving lunch, knowing that I had days of leftovers ahead of me. (of which we're still working our way thru the plates in the fridge. But each day, more fridge real estate is becoming available.) I hope you had an absolutely fabulous Thanksgiving day + weekend, filled with laughter, family and friends. And for those of you who don't live in the United States, I hope you also had a relaxing, enjoyable weekend. Our day was a fabulous merging of my family along with my boyfriend's family and our roommate and her husband. It was a smashing success. (Can't you tell from all our smiling faces below?)


And we, along with a lot of other families on Thanksgiving, shared what we were grateful for. We went around the table and it actually became a bit of a game. When it was your turn, you had to recall what everyone before you said. Much laughter ensued as people's gratefulness ranged from teeth, their job to the future things.

But it got me thinking about how an attitude of gratitude can make you happier.

Yup, studies have shown that if you cop an attitude of gratitude, you will be a happier person, your friends and family will like you more AND you will shift your perspective to a more positive one.
