In the aftermath of Thanksgiving break, many of us are counting our blessings and giving thanks for the many gifts in our lives. Yet practicing gratitude shouldn’t just be relegated to the holidays; in fact, being thankful year-round can have tremendous benefits.
We’ve all heard the maxim that life is better when you live it with an “attitude of gratitude” — and for good reason.
