Happy Thanksgiving From the Halftime Institute

Happy Thanksgiving From the Halftime Institute

Thanksgiving may be a holiday we only celebrate once a year, but the action of being thankful is something God intended for us to incorporate into our daily lives.

 “Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”  I Thessalonians 5:16-18

Unfortunately, many times we forget to share what we are thankful for due to the busyness of the weekend, and therefor, we miss a great opportunity to show our gratitude.

Did you know studies show that grateful people:

  • have stronger immune systems and lower blood pressure
  • have higher levels of positive emotion
  • sleep better
  • earn more annually
  • have deeper, more satisfying relationships
  • give 20% more and volunteer regularly
  • experience more joy, optimism, and happiness


Our challenge to you this Thanksgiving is to ask yourself these three questions:

  1. What am I most thankful for in the last two weeks?
  2. How could I show my gratitude to someone I am thankful for in a unique, meaningful way?
  3. What specific actions could I take to implement gratitude into my daily life?
  4. Happy Thanksgiving from the Halftime Institute!
