Sure it’s been said a million times over, but the real reason to celebrate next Thursday is to give thanks for what you have in your life. This year, it is especially important to put the focus on the positive, not on what you may not have or what you may have lost during the recession. Giving thanks for a roof over your head and food on the table is a good start.
While you’re giving thanks, be sure to include the happy in Happy Thanksgiving by enjoying a good laugh. Doctors already know laughter reduces pain and allows us to tolerate discomfort. Besides, laughter, along with an active sense of humor, may help protect you against a heart attack, according to a recent study by cardiologists at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
