Day 6: Healthy Mind Challenge- Thanksgiving

Day 6: Healthy Mind Challenge- Thanksgiving

“Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayer” -Maya Angelou, Celebrations: Rituals of Peace and Prayer

You may know already that I am working on a cookbook with a fellow foodie and writer. Today we began preparing our first meal for the cookbook which happens to be a traditional Christmas dinner with a healthy twist. While I’m not ready for the instrumental versions of holiday classics to be playing in the background as I shop, it did get me into a holiday mood. What a perfect way to prepare for today’s challenge!

As part of my family’s tradition, on Thanksgiving we go around the table and say what we’re most thankful for. While we are always thankful for whatever it is that is most important to us at that time, gratitude often gets placed on a shelf during the rest of the year. We often take for granted the things that we should be most thankful for, so today’s challenge is to be thankful. Get out your journal or just grab a pen and paper and write down ten of the things you are most thankful for.

Here are mine, in no particular order:



Friends, old and new

Family, especially my children

Faith and the right to practice my religion

Freedoms that living in this country provides me

Sleep/ Rest

Color and variety of life

My senses; vision, sounds, smells, taste

Beauty in all creation

My home, shelter from any weather
