It’s become somewhat of a tradition around here to instigate a gratitude practice each November. It’s the month we celebrate Thanksgiving, so what better time to reflect on what we’re thankful for? We know gratitude is something many of you value and try to improve upon, so we’re taking it back to the basics this year and throwing out a challenge called The Grateful ABC’s.
Here’s how it works. Every day during the month of November, we’re asking you to think of something you’re grateful for that starts with a certain letter of the alphabet. Starting with ‘A’ on November 4th, and ending, appropriately, on Thanksgiving. We’re taking out ‘X’ and ‘Z’ for obvious reasons. But, you’ve still got twenty-four opportunities to stretch your creative writing brain and reflect on life’s blessings.
There are a couple ways you can participate. You can take a mental pause each day to just sit and reflect on the letter and what you’re grateful for. Additionally, we are making it easy for you to put it down on paper.
Use this printable to track your daily gratitude. Stick it to the fridge, put it on your nightstand, and pick up a pen daily to jot down something you’re thankful for. We hope this personal exercise will cement the spirit of the season, and maybe even work as a family activity as well.
