Many readers will be celebrating Thanksgiving today. Even if we aren't it is a great opportunity to pause for a few minutes and think about what we are grateful for. I wanted to share a recent blog post from my group coaching blog for coaches on why gratitude is important. In it I include three practices you can share with your team to foster more gratitude. You can read the blog post here.
Flowing from gratitude are a number of health and psychological benefits which include higher levels of optimism, increased positivity, more pro-social relationships , happier relationships, and also lower levels of toxic thoughts. As you will read, one practice which has been shown to increase gratitude and the benefits is keeping a gratitude journal, which is as simple as writing down on a weekly basis five things you are grateful for that week.
You can read more about what science has found about the importance of gratitude and how to incorporate more of this at this link from the Center for Greater Good from the University of Berkeley.
