Global Gratitude Challenge

Updated: Apr 12, 2020

The art of gratitude is something that has been transformational in my life in the past 6 months. I sit with myself every single morning and take the time to reflect and remember 5 things that happened in the last 24 hours that sparked joy or made me smile.

This practice, when done consistently, has affected my whole life. It has pushed me to search for moments I'm thankful for. In the absolute hardest days I would still make myself write out 5 things and I would leave the practice with a completely new perspective on my life.

Then, 4 months into this habit I had adopted I asked a friend to try it out with me. To keep her accountable, everyday (we lived together so we got to do this in person) we discussed our 5 pieces of gratitude together. This solo practice now became a beautiful conversation that left us both feeling so full of love, happiness and gratitude for the life we get to live.

Now, here we are in a global pandemic.

Every day we are experiencing a new flush of emotions. To say we are feeling overwhelmed, uncertain and in a panic right now would be an understatement. We are experiencing extreme amounts of stress that's incredibly detrimental to our mental, emotional and physical health.

If there's ever a time gratitude has been most needed in our lives it’s NOW.

I am getting together a group of people from all over the world, from all different walks of life to practice daily gratitude with each other.

I will be offering daily prompts for all of us to discuss our thoughts, experiences and feelings that we feel grateful for each day.

The time is NOW

Let’s talk about what you're thankful for in the most new, creative and exciting way the world has ever seen. We all need it right now, we are watching the world change as we speak and we must be present for this experience.

I guarantee this practice is a gateway to being more present, appreciating the small things and enjoying life through all it's insanity.

What are you waiting for?
