It’s almost Thanksgiving which means it’s the perfect time to up your gratitude game. Starting a daily gratitude practice helps me manage my depression and anxiety and just generally feel better about life. I’m not a naturally positive person. It takes a good amount of effort every day to stay in a positive mindset. Even though it takes a lot of effort I think it’s really worth it because I feel so much better when I’m operating from a place of gratitude and positivity.
