We're heard it said time and again that an "attitude of gratitude" is one of the keys to a fulfilling life. You might already practice this, or it may not be anything new to you. But sometimes we need a reminder -- or a gentle nudge. So here are some ways you can experience more love and gratitude every day:
Sure, Thanksgiving is mostly lauded for the classic feast of turkey and cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes and gravy, and an array of pies that will make our inner piggies grunt with overfed satisfaction. But before you get lulled into that turkey coma, try doing something a little more active together as a family this long weekend.

The start of October, crisp cool mornings, and changing fall colours mean one thing: Thanksgiving is around the corner! This fall holiday is typically marked with a delicious (and often decadent) turkey meal. Whether you're planning to host or attend a holiday get-together, consider these tips for enjoying a heart-healthy Thanksgiving:
In all the bustle of "celebrating Thanksgiving," it's easy to forget everything we have to be thankful for. Not the least of these are the bounty of food, and wonderful people to share it with. A couple of years ago, I discovered the key to gleaning the most from Thanksgiving weekend and in turn, bringing more joy to the table to offer those around me.
This Canada Day we are reminded that our country is a nation of immigrants, many of whom took risks similar to yours to create a better life for themselves and their children. And, like you, they came to the right place. I am proud to be Canadian. I am proud to be Polish. And I am proud to live in a country where those two things are actually one and the same.
I have a lot to be thankful for. Good health, a loving family, a home and a gratifying job. But like many, I often take these blessings for granted. This year, however, is different. Today I am thankful for having shared a cup of coffee with Syrian women refugees in Sawere, a small town in Lebanon's Bekaa valley.
Thanksgiving marks the arrival of another regular occurrence though most of us do not discuss at this time. It's the impending arrival of the flu.

The flu season doesn't usually start until November and usually doesn't make headlines until the Holiday Season.
