This time of the year is a time to reflect on the past and to plan the future. It's also a time to count our blessings and to be grateful. A novel way to remember all the things we're grateful for, is to create a Gratitude Jar. An old jam jar, an ornamental box with a lid, a decorated Tupperware container - the choice is yours. Fill it with scraps of paper and attach a pen. Throughout 2015, make a point of jotting down the things we're thankful for, big and tiny. And then at the end of the year, we can sit down with a mug of hot chocolate or a glass of champagne and re-live our year in positives.
