Why is giving thanks and sharing positivity important?
Gratitude is vital in everyday life, not only on Thanksgiving. Adopting a positive and grateful attitude benefits our physical and mental health and fosters other positive emotions like empathy and kindness. The best part is that it’s an easy habit to kick off. Sometimes all you need is a pair of dice and a printable game! This roll-the-dice game became my family’s favorite game not only because of how easy it is to set up but because at the end of the game, we all end up feeling happy and grateful for days.
Plus, pretty much everyone has a set of dice at home, making it super easy to play anytime. By the way, did you know that the first dice were made from animal bones, and early dice games were used to help people make decisions about important matters such as war and commerce? And they’re found in most homes and schools!
