Finding Gratitude in 2020
Practicing gratitude daily creates awareness and appreciation for what we do have that is positive and life-affirming. It gives us perspective. Gratitude fosters a sense of overall well-being and contentment when we incorporate it into our daily awareness.
And let’s face it, in this day and age of 24/7 access to everything from constant use of our smartphones and social media to cable tv channels and streaming services, we are bombarded with information. Unfortunately, much of this information-overload is negative, chaotic, and disturbing news, images, and drama. This constant bombardment of information, updates, and notifications can negatively impact our health, stress levels, and overall attitude.
