Funny, but sadly true...
Attitude of Gratitude
Black Friday insanity aside, practicing thankfulness may reduce stress and signs of depression. Check out SUAR's post for some tips on how to be grateful, even when you don't feel like it.
Celebrate by streaking!
Last year Runner's World started a new holiday tradition: the Holiday Run Streak - run at least 1 mile, each day, between American Thanksgiving and the New Year.
I did it before.
And I'm streaking again.
Except this year I started before Halloween. Yesterday's Turkey Trot was day 27 in my streak, and I ran 24:48.
Tired of turkey?
If you have 20 pounds of poultry left from your 25-pound bird, first of all... you're not alone. Americans toss nearly one third of the turkey they buy for the holidays.
If you're looking for creative ways to use your leftovers, Epicurious.com has an interactive Thanksgiving Leftovers (survival) guide. It's like an Extreme Makover: Poultry Edition.
Myth-busters: Thanksgiving Edition
Some of what we (think we) know about America's biggest holiday isn't quite right. National Geographic debunks some of the biggest Thanksgiving myths.
Quote of the week:
"It's not happy people who are thankful. It's thankful people who are happy."
Happy Friday, friends!
