A simple way to get to know yourself...


It's so simple that it gets overlooked! GRATITUDE 

People who practice gratitude, with others and via journaling, reap many mental and physical rewards like:  

  • Reduced toxic emotions (Ref: Robert A. Emmons, Ph.D) 
  • Better sleep (Ref: Applied Psychology: Health and Well-Being, 2011)
  • Strengthened relationships (Ref: 2014 Emotion study)

Choose your approach.

Journal: We recommend saving 10 minutes at the beginning or end of your day to write down 5 things you're grateful for. There is no thought too trivial or mundane or grand. BONUS: record something about yourself that your are grateful for.

Say Thank You: Embrace every opportunity to say thank you today. Be aware of coworkers, pets, and family members. Gratitude is a great way to project positive energy to others. 


Note: Comparing gratitude lists over time can help you recognize what you find truly important. Reflect back onto these lists when making life changes.
