Making time to reflect and be grateful for all the wonderful things you have can be challenging. Especially when you’re busy is when you need this time! Whether you are preparing for a more grateful Thanksgiving, or you just want to take a moment to think about all the things you have to be grateful for, a challenge can help you do just that. So I put together a 30-day gratitude challenge to help us learn to be more grateful and show it every day for 30 days.
Let’s commit to 30 days of intentional gratitude. Feel free to bookmark this article, as I’ll be updating it throughout the challenge with links to livestreams, videos and blog posts to support you along the way.
