Last week we started Gratitude Journals. A Gratitude Journal includes things that we are grateful for and helps us to focus on the positives in our lives.
Gratitude helps us to see what is there instead of what isn’t. As part of our Positive Education program we are focusing on gratitude and all the positive effects of being grateful. Experts say that you can “rewire” your brain to be happy by simply recalling 3 things you’re grateful for every day for 21 days.
The benefits of practicing gratitude are nearly endless. People who regularly practice gratitude by taking time to notice and reflect upon the things they’re thankful for experience more positive emotions. simply keeping a gratitude journal—regularly writing brief reflections on moments for which we’re thankful—can significantly increase well-being and life satisfaction.
We look forward to sharing some entries from our Gratitude Journals!
