November 2021: Make Gratitude Your Attitude

One Source EAP Connections – November 2021

November is all about being thankful. Each Thanksgiving we count our blessings - and it feels good. Research suggests we could do ourselves a world of good by practicing giving thanks daily, rather than once a year.

We experience gratitude when we shift our focus from what we don’t have to what we do, and when we take time to appreciate and be thankful for those who have contributed to the quality of our lives. In doing so, we choose positive emotions over negative and take steps to nurture both our physical and mental wellbeing.

Being thankful is as easy as saying, “Thank you,” writing a note to someone who did something nice for you or starting your own Gratefulness Journal. There’s an app for that!

One Source EAP can help you to develop your gratitude skills or provide support when life overwhelms you. We provide individual sessions for you and your family, including children up to age 26, to EAP seminars, to the Calm Collection video series. To use your benefit, call (800) 300-0628. The Access Center is open 24/7/365.

Contact with the EAP is completely confidential!
