“Giving thanks for abundance is greater than abundance itself.” – Rumi

This past weekend we celebrated Thanksgiving in Canada. It has been quite a challenging year for so many, and this much-anticipated celebration felt different somehow. Yet we didn’t want to pass up the opportunity to pause and reflect on the abundance of things we feel grateful for.

We firmly believe that performing simple daily acts of gratitude only takes a few minutes but can have a big impact on our health and mood. It can help us to feel calmer and more accomplished, to focus on what really matters to us and to generally make us feel happier.
