This #ThoughtfulThursday is about gratitude.

By recognizing and appreciating the goodness in your life, you can improve your mood by focusing on the things you already have rather than the things you lack.One study even found that people who practiced gratitude on a daily basis even exercised more!

Gratitude journals are a great way to track the good things in your life.

There are also a bunch of free apps for tracking gratitude.
