Season of Thanks 

Tips and Affirmations to Help You Stay Thankful all Year Long


Practice Gratitude.

Charlie Silva, Certified Hypnotist

Practice gratitude. Instead of focusing on what OTHERS have that you don't, focus on what you DO have and be grateful for it. Gratitude is so important and one of the fastest ways to shift yourself into a positive frame of mind.

The Secret to Happiness: 5 Tips to Feel More Grateful and Blissful

By Lynne Goldberg

1. Keep a gratitude journal.
Make gratitude a daily habit. Every day, jot down 10 great things that happened to you or that you are grateful for. Keeping your focus on the positive will really make a difference.

2. Practice present moment awareness.
The habit of being fully present and not wishing for something in the future or the past—but just being grateful for what is—can really shift your perspective. Catch yourself when that moment escapes you, and gently remind yourself to come back.

3. Think bigger than yourself.
Become involved in a cause that is important to you. As you become aware of other people who are less fortunate than you, you will start to feel a deeper appreciation for what you do have.

4. Share the love with your family and friends.
Cultivate appreciation for others and let them know regularly that you are grateful for them and for what they do for you—whether it be helping around the house or always inviting you out for a fun dinner date.Focusing on the positive will make people want to keep doing it!

5. Replace complaints with gratitude.
When you find yourself focusing on what you believe you’re lacking—I wish my car were nicer, my house were bigger, I had more money—replace it with thoughts of what you are grateful and thankful for.

What are you grateful for today?



Chris Howell, Integrated Yoga Counselor

As we move into the holidays, being grateful is a common theme, yet can sometimes feel hard to connect to. It can be difficult to be grateful when we are in constant motion and have an endless to do list. We get caught in the trance of striving. Through the use of mindfulness we can begin to remember what we are truly grateful for in our lives, and tap into our well of abundance. Some examples of these practices are pausing when we notice we are moving quickly, paying attention to our breath, and reminding ourselves we are doing the best we can!

May you have a grateful holiday season. Namaste, Chris Howell


Massage: A Tool in Tough Times

Phoenix Fisher, LMBT

When you're feeling your best, you're more able to take on the challenges life throws at you. That's why, in tough times, your own health and wellness should be a top priority. Massage has been shown to reduce anxiety and stress while improving energy, sleep, and the immune system. When you think about it in this light, massage isn't a luxury—it's an excellent investment in your long-term self-care.

Love is above all, most important. Next in line is health. There's no such thing as bad health. You are either healthy or not. When we are out of health life is tougher. Taking time and moments to be grateful for the miracle of our human existence, being grateful for the miraculous human body and all the miracles comprised within can open many doors toward health. We become more aware and accountable for our choices. This is self respect, self love. This leads to health.

Believe in the ability for the body to heal itself. Treat yourself with love.

Be Grateful.

Kaitlin Iverson, Registered Yoga Teacher

Each day, at least once a day-
Begin each morning as the sun brings a new day onto us,
Or end the day with closed eyes as you reflect.
Take a deep and slow breath-
Breathing into all parts of the body,
Clearing your mind of anxieties and worries.

Take this moment,
And be grateful.
Grateful for your health and mobility.
Grateful for your family and friends.
Grateful for shelter, food and water.

Then begin to expand your gratitude to your neighbors, to the trees and to the critters.
Expand all the way to the odd parts of the world we have yet to see.
Be grateful for all who breathe, live and thrive to create this world that spins.

Be grateful.
Be grateful for this life.
Be grateful for this moment.

Be grateful.
