With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we’re reminded of the importance of thankfulness. While we all have quite a bit to be thankful for, the hustle and bustle of everyday life makes it easy to forget to set aside time to actually celebrate all of the good in our lives. On this week’s blog, FREEDOM Naturals is spotlighting five ways you can practice thankfulness this month.
- Give Someone You Love a Random Phone Call
It sounds simple, but also seems all too common to go days or even weeks without speaking to loved ones. Pick up the phone and give your mom, sister or best friend a random call just to say you love them and want to check in. This is a super easy way to show the people in your life that you care and are thinking about them.
- Try Not to Complain About Anything For a Day
Seriously, see if you can do it! Go one full day without complaining about a single thing. Focus your energy on all of the positives in your life and let go of the negatives. If something goes wrong or seems unfair, just roll with it! Most of the time, the good in our lives really does outweigh the bad.
- Spend Quality Time With Friends and Family
We all love spending time with friends and family, but this month, make sure you spend quality time with them. Put down your phone, be in the moment, pay attention and ask good questions. You’ll be amazed at how much fun you can have when you allow yourself to be fully present with the ones you love.
- Volunteer in Your Community
There’s no better way to practice thankfulness than to donate your time to help those who are less fortunate. Grab your besties or your family and spend the day volunteering in your community. Whether you spend the morning serving food at the local shelter or organize a donation drive for the upcoming holidays, this act of kindness will remind you of everything you have to be thankful for.
- Associate Negative Thoughts With Positive Thoughts
It’s inevitable, things in life just go wrong sometimes. But this month, try to associate these let-downs with positive thoughts. For example, if you have conflict with a co-worker, take time to appreciate your job and the ability to provide for yourself. If you burn the dinner, take a second to be thankful that you don’t have to go hungry. These little moments of gratitude will help put daily annoyances into perspective.
