Be Specific!

97c306f82903dcf96a3603894bb17cdd-huge-grIt's day 2 of the Get Your Gratitude On challenge. It’s easy (and tempting) to list the same big things you’re grateful for again and again – your health, your family, your job! But experts say being specific is key.

Instead of writing down that you’re thankful for your life, recall a specific moment you appreciated. Maybe you helped a struggling new mom nurse her baby for the first time. Or maybe when a patient was being discharged, he looked into your eyes and said, “Thanks for what you did for me. I’ll never forget you.” The more detailed you can be, the more likely you’ll remember the experience over the long haul and the happier it will make you.

Tell us what you’re thankful for today in our discussion or on Facebook.
