My Gift of Gratitude

Soon available on Amazon.com!

 

This is a 52-day gratitude practice using cards. There is one card for each day which will allow you to reflect and raise your awareness of all the blessings inside you and around you. This is my gift to you. A warm invitation for you to experience it, enjoy it, embrace it, and pass it along to those you love, so it becomes YOUR gift of gratitude. 

Gratitude is a powerful elevated positive emotion that allows us to enjoy the great things in life, inside us and around us. Life, for example, is the greatest gift of all. We have been blessed with life, with the opportunity to experience this amazing world we call planet Earth. When we are grateful, our attention shifts to all that is positive in our lives, and our energy follows which means you will engage in activities that will feel good. The Greater Good Science Center (University of California Berkeley) offers plenty of information on the benefits of a gratitude practice (check their white paper “The Science of Gratitude” published in 2018).

Instructions

 

  1. This Gratitude practice has been designed to last 52 days. There is one card for each day.
  2. If you would like to measure the impact on your level of well-being, I recommend you take a happiness or gratitude test before and after the practice to see improvement in results for yourself. The University of Pennsylvania’s Authentic Happiness Questionnaire Center surveys, such as the General Happiness Scale, Gratitude Survey, or Satisfaction with Life Scale developed by their Positive Psychology Center, and the Gratitude Quiz by the Greater Good Science Center-UC Berkeley are excellent options. Both links available below!
  3. Take one card each day at a time when you have few distractions, for example when waking up or before going to sleep. Read the card and reflect for a couple of minutes on how the card relates to your specific experience. Visualize in your mind a situation you lived related to the card. Once done, place the card facing down at the bottom of the deck and the next card will be ready for you the next day.
  4. Keeping a gratitude journal has been proven to increase levels of well-being, so it is recommended that you write your reflections each day. At the end of the practice, it feels great to read all 52 reflections, recalling insights, remembering, and savoring them one more time. If you decide to do the reflections in writing, I offer a free simplified gratitude journal in PDF format that you can download here or buy the journal separately.
