Chooseday 8th August - Let's Choose Gratitude.

Good Morning,

In the hustle and bustle of today's fast-paced world, taking a moment to pause and appreciate our blessings often gets bumped down our priority list. This Chooseday, we invite you to slow down and 'Choose Gratitude'. It's not merely about uttering 'thanks', but actively recognising and cherishing the many gifts life offers us every day, from the seemingly mundane to the truly spectacular.

Gratitude, as simple as it may seem, holds transformative powers. According to a study published by the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley, individuals who wrote weekly gratitude journals exercised more regularly, reported fewer physical symptoms, felt better about their lives as a whole, and were more optimistic about the upcoming week compared to those who recorded hassles or neutral life events.

Additionally, a study in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology found that gratitude can lead to better sleep. Those who expressed gratitude more often reported quicker sleep onset, longer sleep duration, and better sleep quality.

The effects of gratitude extend to our social lives too. A survey by the John Templeton Foundation discovered that people are more likely to express gratitude at home than in the workplace, despite 93% of those polled agreeing that grateful bosses are more likely to succeed. This Chooseday, let's not limit our expressions of gratitude to our personal lives, but let it echo through our professional world as well.

So this Chooseday, we challenge you - what are you truly grateful for? Try to identify three things and make a note of them. It could be as simple as your morning coffee or as profound as the love of your family. By nurturing a habit of gratitude, we can tap into a source of joy that's always available, always abundant. While we're expressing gratitude, why not consider showing your gratitude for others, by lending a helpig hand to your local charity?

Happy Chooseday! Let's choose gratitude and discover how it can enrich our lives.

Thank you for being a part of the GoodCompany community and for choosing to do good.

Giving Solutions, the GoodCompany team.
