THE GRATITUDE WEEK PROJECT

by Nov 2, 2019

Close your eyes, take a deep breath: slow inhale filling your lungs and belly, hold at the top, exhale with a sigh.

“Your brain at positive performs significantly better (31% better) than it does at negative, neutral or stressed. Your intelligence rises, your creativity rises, and your energy levels rise.” – Shawn Achor, PhD., in The Happiness Advantage

 

If someone said that you already have everything you need to be happy, successful and to build the life you always wanted, would you believe it? Well, I am telling you YOU DO! It’s in you and I am here to teach you how to reach it.

A new year is just around the corner, and this is a great time to start a new practice and habit: gratitude. Focusing on what’s good and working (gratitude) can make this time easier, better and more enjoyable for you and everyone around you.

This simple gratitude practice can actually impact you for life! Gratitude cultivates happiness, and happiness fuels success, not the other way around. When we are positive, our brains become more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient, and more productive.

That’s why I am inviting you to join me in The Gratitude Week Project.

For 7 days in January, you will receive an email with simple and easy daily prompts to get you started to cultivate or strengthen your gratitude practice.

At the end of the 7 days, you will have a toolbox full of strategies to support you in your gratitude practice journey AND a new attitude that will make you a better leader, a better entrepreneur and a better person.

 

THE BENEFITS OF GRATITUDE

How much difference can gratitude make in your life?

 

Consciously practicing gratitude can be a real life-changer.

The benefits of consciously practicing gratitude are science-backed and fairly well documented. Gratitude literally rewires your brain. Even a simple gratitude writing practice builds lasting neural sensitivity to more positive thinking. That means the more you practice gratitude, the more you default to positivity instead of negativity.

Positive thinking leads to optimism, good leadership and ultimately success. There’s a surprising amount of research on the benefits of gratitude. The Greater Good Science Center has so much good information here (this is a great article). Gratitude practice is not a “woo-woo” thing, it’s pure science and totally related to our modern lives.

Results you can expect from a continuous gratitude practice:

for the individual:

– increases happiness and positive mood
– less likely to experience burnout
– better physical and mental health
– better sleep
– less fatigue
– lower levels of cellular inflammation
– greater resiliency
– increases patience, humility, and wisdom
– better problem-solving capacities

for groups/teams:

– increases prosocial behaviors
– strengthens relationships
– increases employees’ effectiveness, collaboration, and productivity
– increases job motivation and satisfaction
– increases the company’s bottom line

If you’re looking for ways to foster a positive attitude, improve your health, deepen your relationships and get more enjoyment out of life, try this gratitude project and find out for yourself how much better life can be when you make gratitude a priority.
