Give thanks today and every day
By Edward T. Creagan, M.D.
Let me share with you one of the most effective techniques for enhancing the well-being of those around you. I'm talking about a gift, but it doesn't involve money. It's the gift of appreciation. It's knowing how to give thanks. Let me explain.

If the stress in your life is more than you can cope with, get help right away.
I'm a struggling piano player. I can put together a few simple chords and a couple of melodies that are recognizable as songs. The other day a colleague commented that he enjoyed listening to my musical efforts. Now he knows and I know that I shouldn't give up my day job. Nevertheless, his acknowledgment of my efforts was an incredible gift.
It made me stop and think about how often I may have missed an opportunity to thank or praise someone. So the tip for the day: Tell those around you how much you admire them or appreciate their efforts. If everyone would give thanks, the world would be a better place.blog index
