Rx 23 Write a Letter of Gratitude

Dear Readers,

Hope that you are doing well despite these challenging times. The pandemic had led to some unexpected changes in my life, leading me to take a sabbatical from blogging.

However, as February 18th is approaching, I wanted to post this updated version of a short video that explains the how and why of writing a letter of gratitude. Please join me in helping make this an annual practice worldwide – and in so doing, we can increase positive emotions among others and even within ourselves.

These are difficult times for millions of people. At the same time, it is important to keep sight of the selfless service of so many people, including those who have put their own lives on the line while helping others in need. Despite the challenges and tragedies associated with the pandemic, surely there are people who make a positive difference in your life, even if it is in a small way.

I invite you to take a moment to consider what is going right in this most imperfect of times, and to please consider writing at least one letter of gratitude to someone who has touched your life for the better.

Thank you for subscribing and thank you for sharing the word to help grow Write a Letter of Gratitude Day into an annual worldwide event.

Sincerely,
Dr. S.D. Shanti
P.S. If you happen to have ties to the University of Michigan, I would be grateful if you might consider sharing this with your contacts there, for reasons you will discover in the video.

Millions of people are suddenly dependent on computers for work-related video calls. Then, they transition into video calls with family and friends. Finally they relax with movies streamed via the Internet. All of this adds up to increased amounts of sitting.

Therefore, Risk Factor Mama, Epidemiologist and Expert in All Manner of Deadly Threats to Life, decided to speak out on this topic.
