We both try to live in a state of gratitude. Here is an example from each of us that illustrates how we do this:
Sara: “I use gratitude to help me conquer the occasional bout of insomnia or if I have a challenge with somebody. If I do Quick Coherence with gratitude, I can release the negativity, judgment or frustration I was feeling and then I make better decisions.”
Deborah: “Once I used gratitude before an appointment with a co-worker I had a disagreement with. I focused on what I valued about him. When we met, I was more heart-connected and our communication went smoothly. The problem we had resolved itself!”
Thankfully, gratitude and appreciation can create their own positive psychophysiological holiday in your body ó without the necessity of a feast. If you find yourself facing Thanksgiving stress this week, remember to bring appreciation into your thoughts and heart. This one small adjustment could make a really rich difference in your holiday joy. If you think about it, itís the moments of gratitude that make life worth living anyway.
