MIAMI, FL, November 21, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — With the traditional celebration of Thanksgiving just around the corner, we are given a great opportunity to showcase our gratitude for the things we have. Between the decor, activities, and food; we can sometimes get swooped up in the lavishness of this holiday, forgetting just how thankful we should be. Here are a few things to remind each other what we should be grateful for; providing ways to act on those intentions, lead by example, and actively showcase our appreciation.

Before we get into these, however, we would like to remind you about the importance of your health during this holiday. From your skincare to your mental support to your physical requirements; your health does not take a break even when you do. When buying your various supplements and health products, Review Critic is one of many sites that can help guide you through the purchase process.

So now, without further ado: here is our list of a few things to be thankful for this Thanksgiving and ways to show it.

The food on your plate
It is estimated that 1 in 10 people are malnourished, with this number much higher in developing countries; such as 1 in every 4 people in sub-Saharan Africa are starving. Appreciate your overflowing plate of delicious and nutritious food this Thanksgiving.

How to show it:
– Donate to legitimate charities for both humans and animals; offering up bought goods, financial donations, or volunteering your time.
– Buy ethically-sourced & local food.
– Experiment with vegan alternatives.
– Don’t be gluttonous at the dinner table, give your leftovers to the less fortunate.
– Educate yourself on the issue. Who knows, you might hold the key to innovating a solution.

The clothes on your back
From buying new clothes and shoes to having a selection of outfits; you may not always realize your privilege. Many impoverished people will never come close to experiencing the things you take for granted.

How to show it:
– Take a minimalist approach to your wardrobe, do you really need to own and buy so much? (These tips will also help you get into the appropriate mindset.)
– Donate your old clothes to a charity such as the Salvation Army or Goodwill.
– Mend your clothes instead of throwing them away.
– Thrift second-hand clothes for unique and reused items.
– Educate yourself to the ethical issues in the fashion industry.
– Do not support brands that use unethical or unsustainable practices to produce their clothes.

A safe roof over your head
From a dry place to rest your head to an environment that you feel safe enough to call your own, we often forget what a luxury it is to be in an emotionally supportive and abusive-free place. If you get to fall asleep without the fear of becoming a victim; you are lucky.

How to show it:
– Volunteer your time at a soup kitchen or animal sanctuary.
– Donate to causes that serve to protect animals and people from abusive environments as well as the homeless.
– Be aware of your neighbors’, co-workers’, friends’, and acquaintances’ behavior. Are they showing signs of being in an abusive environment?
– Send care packages to the troops through initiatives like Treat the Troops or AnySoldier.

Mother nature
The source of all of our abundance and life, we have taken so much from mother nature for so long; we are now at the risk of losing it all. From Global Warming to destroying habitats to killing off species – mother nature is something we have taken for granted for too long.

How to show it:
– Try adopting a zero-waste lifestyle.
– Contribute to causes that support environmental efforts and habitat conservation.
– Support charities that help save animals.
– Be aware of your carbon footprint.

Family and friends
Your loved ones are of vital importance. They support you, care for you, and love you. Your friends and family are important and should be appreciated for the value that they bring into your life.

How to show it:
– Spend quality time with your family and friends.
– Show them that you care and love them by understanding them.
– Visit a senior center and engage with people that may have been forgotten.

So there you have it, a few things to be grateful for and a couple ways to show it. From donating and volunteering at various charities to making changes to your life; we hope you take the time to contribute to the true meaning of this Thanksgiving.
