What Are You Thankful For?

David Kirsch Asks, "What Are You Thankful For?"

The following post was written by New York-based trainer David Kirsch.

Thanksgiving is a time to reflect and make a list of all your blessings in life. I would not be the man I am today if it were not for the people in my life — my loving parents and sisters, my beautiful girls, my supportive friends, and my devoted clients. All of you believe in me, and complete me in very special ways.

What are you thankful for? Your commitment to wellness should be at the top of the list. Over and over again, you’ve been presented with challenges and succeeded- completing that 5K race, losing 20 pounds, cutting out sugar and caffeine "cold turkey"— no pun intended. Such perseverance takes hard work, so give yourself some credit.

This week when you sit down at the Thanksgiving table, remind yourself of how far you’ve come. Study after study has shown that self-efficacy, the belief that you can stick with it, is one of the most determining factors in staying on track. Have a happy and healthy Thanksgiving!
