What Are You Grateful For?

It's day 8 of the Renew Challenge. Did you know that focusing on gratitude — even when life gets tough — can make you healthier and happier? It’s good not just for your mind, but for your body, too. How Gratitude Changes You and Your Brain

Take 5 minutes to jot down a list of everything you’re grateful for. Aim for 10 items, but if you can think of more, go for it. When you’re finished writing, review your list and place it somewhere you can reference later.

Actively taking the time to be grateful is good for you because it promotes:

  • Better sleep
  • A stronger immune system
  • More empathy for others
  • Improved self-esteem
  • Better relationships

Let us know what you are grateful for in our discussion or in our Facebook group
