#LivSoThankful: How to Safely Show Gratitude

The holidays will look a lot different for us this year, but that doesn't mean we can't find new ways to celebrate and show gratitude. 


Here are a few ways you can safely convene for Thanksgiving:


Virtual Dinner Table

I know we're growing a bit weary of meeting virtually, but right now it may be the most secure way to enjoy one another this year without risking our health. To make it feel like you're together, try sending a recipe and shopping list ahead of time so everyone can enjoy the same meal. You could even take it a step further by preparing the meal and dropping it off at everyone's home if they're local.  


Keep it Small

The safest bet is to simply plan something special for those who share your household.  Try and master a family recipe or keep it simple with a new favorite dish.  Instead of worrying about all of the prep, cooking, and cleanup, you'll have more time for some needed self-care.  So, make the most of it and relax for a change!  

Create New Traditions

Change is inevitable, and good things can come from it. 2020 has pushed us to think outside the box so I know you have it in you to get creative and create new traditions for yourself, and your family in order to keep everyone safe and healthy. 


We hope you're able to find ways to show gratitude while also protecting your loved ones. This won't be easy but we all have so much to #LivSoThankful for! Tag us on Instagram and Facebook and show us how you're spending your holiday.
