We can’t wait to watch the parade, drink some wine, and eat all the food in the land.

Before we indulge, let’s take a moment to focus on the real reason for the season: it’s a time to give thanks.

But why only give thanks on Thanksgiving? How can you fill every day with the thankful spirit that comes with eating 5 slices of pie while you watch The National Dog Show?

Practice gratitude.

Here are 10 ways to be more thankful all 365 days of the year in GIFs!

1. Keep a gratitude journal: write down 5 things you are thankful for each day.

2. Do something you’ve never done before. Experiencing the world from a new angle can really change your perspective.

3. Lend a helping hand, give back, and volunteer!

4. Spread some kindness to yourself and others by offering up props (to them) and swagger (for you).

5. Be in the now. Being present really is a gift.

6. Be a life-long learner. If you do happen to slip out of the moment and think about the past, turn it into something positive and learn from it.

7. Watch your language: keep the negativity out of your vocab list.

9. Literally say thank you. You might find you are thankful for more than you realize.

10. Share a meal with someone you love. And it doesn’t have to be on the 4th Thursday in November; any time will do.

So take some time to practice gratitude, give thanks for the amazing things in your life, and fully embrace this delicious holiday!

Happy Thanksgiving!
