- Savor: Savoring celebrates the ordinary. It helps us to capture and keep what our brain would be tempted to dismiss or call not good enough.

Ignite your senses and ingrain that snapshot to memory.
- Thanksgiving: It is no doubt that partaking in a spirit of thanksgiving increases our joy. While gratitude journals are great, Nicole challenges us to take a step further to actually express the gratitude that we feel towards someone to that person! Not only will it make their day, but it will double your own joy.
