5 Things for Which We Are Thankful

Happy Thanksgiving! It’s hard to believe this week is the “official” start to the holidays. For this edition of the Friday Five, we are getting festive and making a list…of five things for which we are most grateful. We’re doing this because it’s seasonal – it’s fun, of course! – and also because Research suggests practicing gratitude has a strong association with happiness. Don’t believe us? Harvard said so.

We are also encouraging you to make a list of 5 things you are grateful for this holiday season. With that, in no particular order here’s our 5.

1. Family

Family takes many forms.  Including but not limited to employees, partners, friends, and obviously family.  Our employees strive to make each day the best it can be. Our partners give us an opportunity to shoot for the moon. Our friends are special as we get to choose who we spend our time with.  While we don’t get to choose family, they are the ones that have your back and support you when needed most. We cherish them all. 

2. Rest

We are grateful for work as it allows us to provide for ourselves as well as our families, but work/life balance is important.. As noted in our post about Labor Day, having holidays is necessary for that balance.  We are thankful we have days off this time of year and the opportunity to spend time with our families.

3. Health

Oftentimes our health, both physical and mental, is not something we think about until we don’t have it. Take time to take care of yourself, mind, body and soul.

4. Food

At DonorNinja, we’re a group of foodies. This makes us especially excited for Thanksgiving. Sharing meals has been a common thread which connects humanity for eons, and this time of year we are allowed to enjoy a little indulgence with our loved ones.

5. Sports

We like sports here, too. Sports, when played and enjoyed under the confines of friendly competition and community,  can be a terrific way to bring people together. While American Football is commonly associated with Thanksgiving, we have the added treat of the World Cup this year.

Sweet – no pun intended – and simple. Those are our five.

We hope you enjoyed – came up with 5 of your own – and spend the holiday with your friends, family, and those that mean the most to you.

Happy Thanksgiving.
