Lovely Gratitude – My 2019 Monthly Gratitude Challenge
I’m a firm believer in gratitude, I’ve written about it on the blog before. Did you know that gratitude is scientifically proven to be beneficial to your mental health? For 2019 I want to focus more on the gratitude in my life. Whether it is being grateful for the life that I have, or passing that gratitude on to others and paying it forward.
So, I have decided to start a monthly gratitude challenge. On the first Monday of every month I will host a gratitude challenge on the blog, and I would really love it if you would join in with me too!
To take part, just join in, if you want to share with me how it’s going I have a hashtag to use on social media #LovelyGratitude2019. I really hope you find it helps you as much as it does me.
January’s Gratitude Challenge
January’s challenge is really simple. In January the challenge is to write down 100 things that you are grateful for. You can do this over the course of a couple of days, 3 per day for the whole month, or sit down and do it one sitting. Totally up to you! My recommendation is try doing it on a terrible day. A day when everything seems to be going wrong, maybe your car won’t start, your children have been possessed by savage animals, or you’ve realised your budget until the end of January is about £15. Just take some time out, sit with a pen and paper and write about all the good things in your life, I promise it will make you feel better.
Good luck, I’d love to hear how you are getting on, so please do let me know on my Facebook page, or Twitter or Instagram. I’ve also done a little video about the challenge too below, I’m not to confident on video, so please be kind! My aim is to try and do one each month to go with the challenge.
The next challenge goes live on the 4th February, hopefully see you there!
