Saying “thank you” can feel like a simple thing to do — so simple that it can almost be taken for granted. But truly practicing gratitude is not only nice, it’s also good for our health. So, during this season of giving thanks, what better way to get into the feel of things than with a warm grateful grooves playlist?

These songs work as good background music during Thanksgiving dinner, a reminder to celebrate wins from the year, or just to help you get your mind right for that long-overdue appreciation phone call to someone special. Because let’s face it: Words can be hard.
