If you’ve been following SexyModest for a while, you know that we do so much more than sell modest clothing. (Although the clothes are pretty cute, if we do say so ourselves.)

Before you roll your eyes at this totally cliché topic for Thanksgiving time, hear us out -- we know this has been a tough year. You might even be wondering, “What have I got to be grateful for?”
But if you want to show 2020 who’s boss and turn this year around, gratitude is the way to do it.
Gratitude makes you healthier
Has your doctor ever told you, “Hey, you should just try to be more grateful”? No? Well, they SHOULD.
Studies consistently show that grateful people are healthier. They experience fewer aches and pains. They have higher levels of self-esteem. They even SLEEP better. (Sign us up!)
It’s no surprise, but when you’re grateful for your body, you treat it well. The natural consequence is better overall health.
(And yes -- studies show that gratitude can even help people who suffer from chronic, horrible diseases like cancer.)
Gratitude gets rid of toxic emotions
Are you a fearful person? Do you get angry easily? Gratitude is the antidote.
It even works with jealousy. If you listened to this recent podcast episode, you heard Brig share this inspiring fact: Studies show if you are grateful you are less resentful toward someone who has something you don’t.
As Brené Brown said, “Practicing gratitude is how we acknowledge that there’s enough and that we’re enough.”
Gratitude can change the world
What would it do for this world if we all focused on the GOOD instead of the bad? It’s easy to judge, criticize, or belittle another person. It’s easy to compare ourselves to others and wish we had more.
We want to encourage you to strive for something better.
Here at SexyModest, we’re blessed to have an amazing community of friends and followers whom we KNOW are capable of shining some bright lights in this world.
So here’s the challenge: pick something from the list below and commit to doing it. Every. Day.
Not only will this make your life better, but it will bless many others in return.
Tips for becoming more grateful:
Your terrible job is the dream of everyone that needs work.
Your smile is the dream of the depressed.
Your health is the dream of the ill.
Your house is the dream of every homeless.
The very air you breathe is a gift, friends.
