Here's How Gratitude can Shape your Future

Sharon Freedman

A close friend of mine scribbled a message for me the other day in the corner of my notebook.  It said:

 “Without a positive mind, there is a negative future.”  

My first thought was, “How sweet is it that you just wrote me a note I feel really loved”, and then I realized that the timing couldn’t have been better to have this little nugget of wisdom dropped on me. Bam!

So, when you think of Thanksgiving what are the Top Two things that come to mind?

I chose two because I figured Turkey might be your first thought but that giving thanks or gratitude might be a close second. I mean it’s in the name, people. 

Just hold on a second I know that “practicing gratitude” can sound a wee bit woo-woo but there is science to back this sh*@ up. Robert Emmons (Professor of Psychology, UC Davis) did many experiments with people ranging from ages 8 to 80 where he had one group keep a gratitude journal for anywhere from 3-10 weeks and another group write down their daily annoyances.  The benefits of gratitude were INSANE (in a good way).

  • People felt more alert, energetic, and attentive
  • They exercised more
  • They slept better and woke up feeling refreshed (how cool would that be)
  • They felt fewer aches and pains
  • Their blood pressure was lower
  • They felt less lonely and isolated
  • They sought out opportunities to be generous

So, if writing down things that I’m grateful for can have a million amazing benefits it seems like kind of a no brainer. 

I’ve decided to give myself (and anyone who would like to join me) a two-part gratitude challenge inspired by the note from my friend.

For the next 7 days (start any day you’d like)

  1. Write down at least three things each day for which I’m grateful.   
  2. Send/Give at least one written note each day to someone new with the intention of sharing a bit of love.

If you’re going to join me on this challenge or are going to create a gratitude challenge of your own let me know about it in the comments below.

Happy Turkey and Gratitude Day!!!
