Here are some ideas for getting in touch with gratitude and the impact of kindness and abundance in your life.

 

  • Compose a list of people and things you are thankful for.
  • Write a thank you letter.
  • Send Thanksgiving cards to loved ones. Dollar Tree has nice ones, two for a dollar.
  • Complete a guided meditation on gratitude.
  • Bring or send flowers to thank someone.
  • Attend a Thanksgiving Day worship service.
  • Say a prayer of thanks before your Thanksgiving meal.
  • Pass around a “Gratitude Jar” and share your thoughts.
  • Take a walk and reflect on your blessings.
  • Make something creative: a collage, some photographs, a drawing or poem.
  • Attend a 12-step meeting.
  • Volunteer or make a charitable contribution.
  • Reach out to someone who is going through a hard time. Even a phone call can help.
