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).
If you would like to measure the impact on your level of wellbeing, 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. I will be conducting research with 100 people, which will be documented with before and after results. If you would like to participate, please drop us a line.
