The Resilience Project – Gratitude

The Resilience Project 




Some benefits of practising gratitude are: 

  • After 21 days, you start to scan the world for positives. 
  • After 42 days you become: 
  • More optimistic, energised & focused. 
  • Less likely to get sick. 
  • You will sleep better. 
  • Anxiety and depression decreases. 

A few quick and simple ways to practise being grateful are: 

  • Journaling; each night write down 3 things that went well for you that day or purchase a gratitude journal with gratitude prompts. 
  • Write a gratitude letter to someone special, telling them why you are grateful they are in your life. 
  • Have a family discussion on the way home from school or around the dinner table about the things that went well that day or made you smile. 

You can purchase 21-day, 6-month, and family journals from The Resilience Project website if that is something you’re interested in.
