When you think of November, what comes to mind? Fall colors, great food, maybe even family? Another thing that usually comes to mind is gratitude. Many folks use this month as a jumpstart to express their gratitude for the past year. Towards the end of each year we often find ourselves reflecting on the past year and thinking of all the good times as well as the bad. Setting yourself up with a 30 day gratitude challenge is a great way to focus on the good.
It doesn’t matter when you start, doing a 30 day gratitude challenge is great for any time of year.
Here are some great tips on expressing gratitude:
- Be an active listener
- Give out compliments
- Write positive affirmations for yourself
- Be thoughtful
- Give a hug
- Share praise
- Journal on gratitude
- Say thank you
Remember, expressing gratitude for yourself is just as important as expressing gratitude to others. Loving yourself is often more important too!
Have fun with this gratitude challenge and happy holidays!
