As the holiday season gets closer it’s easy to get caught up in the busyness and running around of events and obligations.  Many people will have to travel, many will spend more money than intended, and many will overextend themselves to try and fit everything in.  It can get pretty overwhelming!

Let’s take a step back.

This time of year is one of our favorites at Absolute Health Chiropractic.  Every year we put up a construction paper tree and ask patients to write a small note on one of the leaves about what they are thankful for.  It takes a minute of thought, what are you thankful for? The answers range from funny to heartfelt to inspiring, and at the end of each day we take a peek at what new leaves have appeared on the tree.  Even though the leaves are anonymous, they are so personal.  For us, this is a wonderful way to take a step back and be thankful ourselves for having the opportunity to help so many people. 

Even if you can’t make it in to see us this month, take a minute of your own time and think about what you are thankful for.  You can even let us know by replying to this post if you’d like!  If you are coming in this month, consider bringing a canned or non-perishable food item for our Preble Street Soup Kitchen food drive.  We’ll be dropping off donations the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, so any time before the 27th!  

Have a wonderful and happy Thanksgiving everyone!
