Did you know that the quickest way to feel better when work has you super stressed is to express gratitude? It is. And it’s easy to do.

Find it, express your thanks for it, and feel energy, peace, calm and strength that comes when we get grateful.

Do you really mean to not pay the anesthesiologist? Was my husband supposed to be awake for the procedure? Or maybe you’d have preferred he scrub in and assist? But the biggest lesson I learned came at the end of Stu’s life when he said, “Susan, I miss my life.” Then and there I promised myself never to miss a moment of my life again. For more, click below.

In fact, the more we are thankful for what we have, the more we will have to be thankful for. Gratitude feeds resilience. Click here for more. You’ll be thankful you did.
