Week of October 5-9 - Recognition and Thankfulness

Don’t Worry Be Grateful: Why Being Thankful Isn’t Just for Thanksgiving Day

The clock is running and another holiday is upon us. Another opportunity to make the most of today.

I love Thanksgiving for many reasons – family, friends, food, and fall – these are just some of my personal favourites. But as a psychologist who helps people with anxiety, I like Thanksgiving for the lessons it has for us – the focus on gratitude and the focus on the present.
