Here in the U.S., we’re getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving. Arguably my favorite holiday of the year!

You probably already know I love to cook, and yes – I love to eat!

But this year is super special for me.

You see, a few years back my parents moved to Vegas from New Jersey. They’re not very fond of travel, and I’ve been hosting a group of friends and other family at my house for Thanksgiving — so for the past few years I’ve been missing them. A lot.

Couple months back, I went out on a limb to invite them over for this holiday. I thought if I framed this trip like a stress free adventure – one where I’d take care of all the details to ensure it was truly stress free for them – that maybe they’d be up to come back to the East coast for a bit.

Well…they said YES!

So this week, I get the incredible gift of spending time with my family and really taking care of the two people who worked so hard to raise me.

And since Thanksgiving is inextricably linked with gratitude, for today’s episode of MarieTV, I wanted to share a little-known trick to take your gratitude practice to a whole new level.

Because whether you celebrate Thanksgiving or not, the most fundamental practice to quickly transform your life — any time of year — is gratitude.

Gratitude is simply a deep and genuine sense of appreciation for what you have in your life. For things big and small. For the air you breathe; the unconditional love of your pet; for blessing of someone who loves you.

And this shouldn’t just be an intellectual or mental exercise, it should touch you and fill you up emotionally.

Because when you genuinely fill yourself up with the emotion of appreciation, it changes how you feel and it completely alters the actions you take and, therefore, the results you’ll create.

So if you’d like a simple yet highly effective and science-backed way to take your gratitude practice to the next level, you’re going to love today’s episode.

I was so impressed with this subtle trick that I wanted to do it on the spot with you — so you’ll see just how effective it really is.

Now it’s your turn.

Give this new gratitude strategy a test drive in the comments below. I promise — a few short minutes actually practicing this way can change your whole day.

No half-stepping, alright?

Really get into it.

Emotionally vs. intellectually.

Because how you do something is just as important as what you’re doing.

As always, thank you so much for sharing your heart, your thoughts and your love with this community.

Have a beautiful holiday for those of you who celebrate and have a beautiful week to those of you don’t.

With so much love and appreciation,
