In this article: 

  • A Swedish behavioral health expert shares some tips for reconnecting with gratitude. 
  • A kind word or gesture of appreciation can shift our perspective when we're stressed. 
  • Regular practices focused on gratitude, including journaling or meditation, support our mental health and overall sense of well-being. 
  • What are you thankful for today?  

Some days, in the responsibilities and stresses of everyday life, we can lose sight of what's important. Anxiety can cloud our sense of the positivity, and we forget to take a little time to appreciate our friends, families, co-workers and others for the goodness they bring to us and the way they enrich our day-to-day lives. 

In this short video, Swedish behavioral health expert John Delfeld, LICSW, shares some tips to help us consciously tap into a sense of gratitude and meaningful connection with the people our lives. The practice can alleviate stress and strengthen the important bonds that support our physical and mental health.
