PRACTICING GRATITUDE IS DEEP, SCIENCE-BASED, AND IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
The last thing any parent or teacher wants is to see a kid grow up to act entitled like the world owes you something. Humility and gratitude are universal traits we all uphold. Kids, by nature and age, live in the center of their own world and grow up expecting to be given what they need. Because, well- they're kids. But we need to teach them how to recognize that life is not all about them. In fact, life works better when we put others first and show gratitude for what we’ve been given. Most students don’t practice gratitude, and they won't unless they learn how powerful and relevant it can actually be for their everyday life.
There's fascinating research from neuroscience and psychologists in recent years:
Gratitude makes you healthier: It’s been shown to lower stress, reduce pain, and even improve our immune systems, blood pressure, and heart function.
Gratitude makes you happier: Scientists studying positive psychology found that a one-time act of thoughtful gratitude produced an immediate 10% increase in happiness and 35% reduction in depressive symptoms.
Gratitude rewires your brain: you begin new pathways of positive thinking, positive action, and pro-social behavior. It gives you an experience of joy, thankfulness, and connection (it takes at least 15 seconds of intentional savoring and thoughtful concentration).
With short, engaging videos and actionable reflection exercises and activities, we will walk you through an experience of gratitude where it becomes normal and natural for you.
Here's the guarantee: If you do the work, engage honestly with the questions and prompts we give you, your life will be healthier, happier, and stronger. Don’t take our word for it- trust the scientists who’ve studied it. Actually, don’t take their word for it, either- test it for yourself. What you put into this will determine what you get out of it.
