Good Morning! I woke up this morning completely blessed to be alive. We aren’t promised tomorrow and EVERY day is a GOOD day! November is the month that we celebrate Thanksgiving here in America. How awesome is it that we take an entire day to celebrate things that we are thankful for. I believe we should take it further and go for the entire 30 days of November Last year, I wrote a blog regarding the Importance of Thankfulness in our lives. Let me ask you, what has changed? Realistically, just because November will come and go, is that any reason to forget to give thanks for those things which we have been given? I’d say no. However, some of you would be more comfortable with only setting a small goal that can be easily achieved. Since there is definitely a Mind-Body-Spiritual connection that goes on in our bodies, I would recommend that everyone do this. I’m not a fan of just trying as trying allows you a way out. Either make a commitment or not, it’s your choice.
30 Days of Thankfulness
So here’s what I’d love to see you do. For the next 30 days, commit to making it a priority to be thankful. I have committed to putting what I’m thankful for on my Facebook and Twitter feeds so that you guys can keep me accountable. After all, what good is it for me to recommend this for you and not do it myself? Here’s all I’m asking, take a few minutes, reflect on things you’re faithful for. They can be small, they can be large. Share them with someone. It doesn’t have to be on Facebook or Twitter, but I believe you’ll see some positive responses to your posts. If you don’t use that avenue, tell or text your thankfulness to a friend and write it down on a piece of paper next to your bed. Keep track of them and review them throughout the day. I promise you that at the end of this 30 days you will be more positive and grateful than you were when you began. As well, since the mind-body component of your health is so vital, you will improve your health, too.
May you have a wonderfully blessed month!
Yours in Health,
Dr. James Ashley, DC
