What Are YOU Thankful For? Part 1

by Home Page Staff - November 19, 2018

It’s the season of Thanksgiving. Many are traveling to visit family, hustling and bustling with early Christmas shopping, preparing meals, planning vacations, shoveling snow, and undergoing a myriad of other activities. During this busy season, it can very easy to take everything we have for granted.

Moving forward with an attitude of thankfulness reminds of the good things in our lives, gives us hope, helps us appreciate the people around us, and can even benefit us physically.

According to assistant professor of psychology, Dr. Nicolle Mayo, “What happens when we are grateful, or appreciative, or engaged in writing about being grateful, and being more positive – is that it elicits different chemicals in our brain. One of the major chemicals…that is released when we express gratitude is oxytocin. This chemical increases our well being, reduces depression, anxiety and stress.”

What are YOU thankful for? Be sure to watch all of our features this week to find out what makes the residents of Tioga County thankful.
