Weekly Note from Ms. Snyder 11/26

Dear NHS Community,

Thanksgiving causes us all to think about that for which we are most grateful. If you are like me, I am guessing that your children make the very top of that list. Teaching them to recognize the good in life can be more challenging than some folks may think. Our kids have what they need and in many cases, much more. I found an article on learnersedge.com about the benefits of teaching our children to be grateful. In this article posted by Barb Istas, she quotes psychotherapist and author Amy Morin who shared collected research on gratitude in her Forbes magazine article, "7 Scientifically Proven Benefits Of Gratitude That Will Motivate You To Give Thanks Year-Round.” Here’s her list. 

Gratitude: 

  • Opens the door to more relationships. 

  • Improves physical health. 

  • Improves psychological health. 

  • Enhances empathy and reduces aggression. 

  • Promotes better sleep. 

  • Improves self-esteem. 

  • Increases mental strength. 

Wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving!
