Janis, thanks for the reminder to be grateful. A thread already exists to list three items for gratitude...and it also asks us to list three goals for the day. Just to avoid confusion , I would ask that you move over to that thread. For me , the goals are a very helpful addition because they help me to identify three OBTAINABLE things I can do each day...and that helps me to be grateful. SO I would invite you all to the 3+3 thread here....it is under the Healthy Living Thread

Hi,
I think grateful thoughts often throughout the day, and I know it is a great way to find more happiness and peace. I was advised that writing them down is even better, so I thought it might be nice to have a topic here where we can list 3 things, big or small, that we are grateful for on a given day.

I was also inspired by this SparkPeople article about 51 Habits of Happy People: www.sparkpeople.com/resource/wellnes
s_
articles.asp?id=1894

#18 talks about amazing results from doing this for people with severe depression. My chronic RA pain lead to a diagnosis of depression (even though I felt happy) and I've read of a high correlation of RA with depression.

So, what 3 things are you grateful for today?
