Here in the USA, we're slowly getting back to work after what was for many a four-day Thanksgiving weekend. For those who wish the Thanksgiving celebration could last a little longer, we have a suggestion: a gratitude exercise we learned about from multi-time Celeb-Reiki Lisa Oz
, a Reiki Master who is married to famed heart surgeon Dr. Mehmet Oz. It's very simple:
Practice saying "thank you" every day. At first, just say "thank you" to everything that happens, good or bad. Just be grateful for it all. Then try alternating: one day, say "thank you" for everything that goes your way; the next, say "thank you" for everything that doesn't.
"The goal is to see how often things really do go your way, and to see the gift in things you thought were negative," Mrs. Oz said.
Give it a try and let us know how it works for you!
