Gratitude Scavenger Hunt


This week, take some time for gratitude. If you think you don’t have time because of all you need to do, consider the research. People who practice gratitude have an improved attitude, have improved physical and psychological health, feel more positive, are able to handle challenges more effectively, and are more likely to have lifelong happiness. When you face life’s challenges with gratitude, they become less overwhelming and more manageable, creating a sense of well-being.

If you still aren’t sure, give it a try this week and see for yourself. Try one of these ideas:

  •  • Go outside for a Gratitude Scavenger Hunt,
  •  • Write a list each day of things you are thankful for,
  •  • Call or send a note to someone you appreciate,
  •  • Be creative and show gratitude through art, dance or music,
  •  • Come up with your own idea!

Even taking one minute to be mindfully grateful each day, especially first thing in the morning, can have a positive impact on your well-being and state of mind!
