Happy Thanksgiving

November 22nd, 2016

Thanksgiving – that wonderful holiday filled with Family. Friends. Food. Football. The kickoff for gaining that weight you resolve to lose come New Year’s Day.

The truth is, as much as we love the holiday, the giving of thanks is an attitude that serves us well all year long.

“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”   Oprah Winfrey

In fact, while we don’t fully understand the link between an attitude of gratitude and our health, research indicates that it does make a difference. Giving of thanks on a daily basis results in:

  • Better sleep
  • Reduced cardiac risk
  • Reduced blood pressure
  • Improved kidney function
  • Reduced stress-hormone levels

Of course, improved health isn’t the only reward for a grateful heart.

“Gratitude can transform common days in thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.”  William Arthur Ward

Here at Olympic Staffing, we give thanks every day for you – our employees and our clients. May your Thanksgiving holiday be extra special this year and may it spark a year of daily gratefulness among us all.

While you’re rooting for your favorite team with family and friends, enjoy this easy dip recipe for crackers or bread.
