As fitting as it is... we are doing a Thanksgiving theme this November for our Fitness Inspired Boot Camp programs. Plot twist and to my brother's dismay LOL, I separated the words out into 3 different words which will be our focus-- Happy, Thanks, and Giving versus the 2 word version that my brother, Kyle got hung up on ;)
I am so excited for this theme as I have been obsessing (in a totally healthy way I hope! ask my husband for confirmation on this;) )about:
Happy: Happier by Gretchen Ruben this is a podcast that Gretchen does with her sister and I absolutely LOVE these little helpful hints and methodology she talks about to hopefully make everyone's lives a little happier. Check her out here
Thanks: I have been talking about gratitude journals the last couple years and I am happy to report for the last year I have made my gratitude journal a consistent habit! Yayyy! Yes, this stuff is challenging for me too :) The way I got it to finally stick and therefore feel the AMAZING effects of it is to (1) keep it simple (2) make it work for me and.... as Nike likes to say 3) just do it!!
How I do it:
I think the key will be to be smart in what has worked well in the past for me...take the gratitude journal I talked about above for example and apply these concepts...and add ONE imperative thing for myself and I encourage you to do this too! That is-- be consistent with SMALL acts of GIVING every day...the big grandiose stuff will come but focus each day on an intentional act of Giving--whether it be giving a compliment, writing a sincere specific text to someone in an act of giving, or collecting can foods to give to the boy scouts on a particular day. Let's start small, keep it simple, and say with me now #3)...just do it!
Will you join me? I love working on a team! I love making a positive difference! I love making changes YOU and I love to live with!
Comment below if you are IN! Let's Do this! Happy. Thanks. Giving. Y'all
