Expressions of gratitude by Dr. Munn, PsyD, LCSW, PPSC, online and on-site therapist for professional women and adolescents located in Mountain View, CA.
Professional women are often on the go, moving from one thing to the next, checking off items on their to do list and synthesizing it so it’s more efficient.
It’s often quite hard for them to slow down, and in fact, they need an external force (illness, children, etc.) to slow them down. The internal breaks are so foreign and novel that it’s hard for them to step on the breaks without feeling tremendous guilt.
One of the things we can do to help create an internal break is to express daily gratitudes. Gratitude allows us to take a momentary break without the accompanied feelings of guilt or shame.
On this national holiday I encourage you to cease the moment, be intentional about slowing down, express gratitude, and simply just sit in the experience
What are you grateful for? I’d love to hear from you!
