As we near the end of the year and reflecting back at 2020, it is safe to say that it has not been easy for any of us to monitor our stress levels. Aside from the ongoing pandemic, there has been one natural disaster after another. From blazing fires across our natural landscapes, snow storms and hurricanes, it all can make us feel overwhelmed. And now that our workspace blended into our living space, it has made it more difficult to separate the two. Cue the anxiety.
However, there are ways to manage our stress-levels in order to remain productive and not focus on what we cannot control. It's a simple practice, but not always easy to execute-gratitude. In the simplest terms gratefulness is an adjective used to describe our emotional state towards an act of kindness. Being thankful, expressing positivity towards those who are in our lives.
So how do we remain grateful, especially while we are working from home?
