This is the month of gratitude, of giving thanks. Gratitude is a way to forge positive thinking and reduce how stressful a situation may seem. I like to compare the brain to a massive, mountainous forest. The well-tread hiking paths come from repetitive use and become your default way. Each time you practice gratitude, you make that route easier to follow the next time - changing and reinforcing the neural pathways most used in your brain. It’s a practice like anything else. Throughout your day, be aware of when you can seize a few seconds of gratitude and hold it in your mind. Each bit counts!
