Because you shouldn't only practice gratitude on Thanksgiving—it should be a year-round attitude.

Welcome to the Real Simple Gratitude Challenge! Throughout the month of November we invite you to join us as we practice cultivating a spirit of gratitude in our daily lives—not just on the one day when turkey is served.

Every weekday in November, we will be giving you tips on and on our social media accounts for how to live a more grateful life—and how to make gratitude a more regular family practice. Our "assignments" will be based on a raft of research showing that people who are grateful for things big and small are healthier and happier.

Please visit us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest to get started!
