November is the month of gratitude! It’s the perfect excuse to sit down, take a deep breath, and reflect on what you’re grateful for.
Performing this simple act of thankfulness is a form of meditation known as gratitude meditation. Reflecting on people and events that make your life brighter does more than just put a smile on your face – it’s also a great way to practice mindfulness.
