Did you know that in the United States more people go home for Thanksgiving than for Christmas? And yet, no presents are exchanged. It is simply a time to return home and share a meal, conversation, time with close family.Taking time to give thanks is seen as important.
Let's consider areas where it's important to stop, take time and give thanks:
- Many of us take our health for granted. We push ourselves to the limits, disregard stress levels, eat and sleep erratically. It's only when we or someone close to us receives a health warning that we start to appreciate the importance of being more respectful of our health. But taking better care of ourselves minimises stress and improves our quality of life. And then if we do occasionally need to cope with stressful times we are healthier and better equipped to do so.
