Watch the above video that explains the neuroscience behind being grateful, isn’t it amazing that our brains actually change when we are thankful to others or when we look back on our day and think about things that we were thankful for. With this time of year being Thanksgiving, it seems to me to be a perfect occasion for us to get some of this bonus happiness that they were talking about in the video. For your blog post this week, you are to use this doc to help you record different things you’ve been thankful for for the week and then, as the week finishes, write a blog post in which you share the three gratitudes that were most important to you and why. To help you with what I mean, I’ll write out three important gratitudes for me.
- I am grateful for my wife, and best friend, Jacey. She has done an amazing job of keeping our family organized, on track and always takes the lead when it comes to packing up for camping. I am so grateful that we have the opportunity to camp with our daughters and it’s in large part because she makes such an effort to make lists, pack up the stuff and get me going.
- I am so grateful for the willingness of you, 6-4 in trying to be the best you can be. You’ve all been willing to try new learning, from frisbee to frog math, and within each day, there’s been something that makes me genuinely laugh. Thank you for being so willing to enjoy school with me.
- I am grateful for my daughters and their easy-going attitudes. Going back to school after a year off has been a challenge to organize, and adjusting to new routines and new schools can be hard but they’ve both been such troopers and for that I’m grateful.
Have an amazing long weekend everyone! I can’t wait to see what your gratitudes are!
