Gratitude Games

Modern research has found that a short and simple gratitude practice has far-reaching effects on both our emotional and physical health.  Gratitude Games is a simple daily practice you can do with family or friends that can make a big impact!

Gratitude Games

1/ Start first thing in the morning with your family or friends, by each setting a timer for every hour (or any amount of time you choose), and when the timer goes off, write down what you are grateful for in that very moment.

2/ In the evening (at an agreed-upon time) share all the things you wrote down during the day, and notice how you feel when you share, and feel your heart filled with gratitude.

3/ Then take 10-15 minutes to sit silently together and send love and gratitude into the world.

Feel Your Body
Relax your body, and just be aware of how your body feels. Without changing anything, notice what you are feeling, and where you are feeling things in your body.  If your body wants to adjust a little, let it. Be curious how it feels as your body relaxes.
