VIDEO EXERCISE: PRACTICE GRATEFULNESS

Make a Gratitude List

Gratitude simply means being thankful for what we have, both tangible and intangible.  Taking the opportunity to express gratitude has been scientifically proven to increase our feelings of happiness.  

Additional benefits of Gratitude include:


GRATITUDE ACTIVITY OPTIONS
(Pick one to add to your daily routine)

Make a Gratitude List

Pick out a journal. You do not have to get a fancy, leather bound notebook, just something simple you can dedicate to your gratitude practice.

Start a Gratitude Jar

Everyday add a short note to your gratitude jar. It can be about something big or small. At the end of each month, read your gratefulness notes and enjoy all that you have to be grateful for.  

Share Your Gratitude

Each day, pick a person and share why you are grateful for them. This is a great way to reconnect and reenergize relationships.  A quick phone call or text to say “I’m thinking about you and appreciate the friendship we have” or “I never said thank you for standing by me”. Keep it simple and speak from the heart.

Both giving and receiving gratitude have a similar effect on our wellbeing. By sharing gratitude, you are helping yourself and someone else!
