Thanksgiving is next week filled with family, friends and Gratitude. The whole month of November, we have been reflecting on Why Gratitude Is Good For Us.

Difficulties don’t disappear instantly when we develop an approach to life that includes gratitude, but it can be a habit that we develop and rely on to use to support ourselves and others throughout the hard times in life.

This week our focus is How Gratitude Can Make You Stronger.

Clinical Social Worker, Dr. Beth Plachetka from Safe Harbor Counseling and Dr. Beth Speaks shows us how strength can come from being grateful! She teaches us to look inward and outward and be thankful for the abilities and strengths we see in ourselves and others. By celebrating these gifts, we become stronger and more resilient.
