Moving into our new term and thinking about how we’re going to get better, be better, and create better, I think this it’s fair to say that happiness is key to our success. Watch this video, presented at a TED talk on happiness. When you’ve finished watching, your job is to create your very own HAPPINESS /Gratitude JOURNAL. There has been tons of research that explains how if we take the time to write down what we appreciate and the good things that happen in a day, our mental state becomes happier and more positive.
For your blog I’d like you to post a Gratitude Journal for this week, and write down 3 things that you were glad happened, positive events and/or things you’re thankful for.
Title your blog post “Your Name -- Gratitude Journal” and list your 3 things in numbered form, providing a full sentence(s) with DETAIL. Here’s an example:
- I am grateful for my family. Having Jacey, Vera, and Stella at home helps ground me, and helps me realize that I have an important role to play in helping the girls become the best people they can be. Each day I realize that they help me be better, help me realize that life is about more than myself and encourage to to also be my best.
