Happy Thanksgiving!

Being thankful is what today is all about. I think it is important to remember that gratitude is very much a too two way street. When we express it we get as well as give.

Here is what Harvard had to say about gratitude in an early post on Positive Psychology:

“Express gratitude. Gratitude is a thankful appreciation for what you have — from a roof over your head to good health to people who care about you. When you acknowledge the goodness in your life, you begin to recognize that the source of that goodness lies at least partially outside yourself. In this way, gratitude helps you connect to something larger than your individual experience — whether to other people, nature, or a higher power.”

Enjoy your turkey today.

  1. Just out of interest, do you ‘watch what you eat’ at thanksgiving and other such occasions, OR do you put it in the 10% of the 90 / 10 rule and just not worry for the day.


    • Thanks, Elizabeth. That’s a great question. Briefly, I kind of give the food cop in me a day off. I want to be able to enjoy the festivities sanely. I don’t go crazy with three desserts or anything like that. I will cool out the next day, though. Also, I try to get a good bike ride in on Thanksgiving morning, so I put some calorie deficit into the bank.
