GRATITUDE TEMPERATURE GAUGE:
The first step to the challenge is to take your temperature. Don't worry no one will show up with a white coat. You'll be taking your "Gratitude Temperature Gauge". It's a simple Q & A where you will rate various aspects of your life and well-being. You will be helping with research (while remaining annonymous), and you will get a clear read as to where your life is at today.
Science suggests it takes 21 days to create a habit.....there is also research that suggests that practicing gratitude will increase your happiness.
INCREASE YOU HAPPINESS:
Research shows that practicing gratitude can increase you happiness by 25%
OUR MOBILE APP IS COMING SOON!
Try the free mobile app "My Journal"
,,,,,or just use an old school notebook.
BEGIN YOUR JOURNAL AND JOURNEY:
Once you register online and taken your gratitude temperature, your gratitude journey begins.
For the next 21 days we will send you one breif ad free email to help keep you motivated, inspired and focused on the habit of gratitude. We want to make your journey as easy as possible.
All you need to do is at the end of each day, write down a minimum of three things you are grateful for. It might be the smell of the outdoors, or a warm cup of coffee, or a smile from a strange, hug from a loved one. There are no wrong answers. The point is to just think for a few minutes about the blessings big and small that are around you.
We are building a free app to help you out....but here are a few that are also free:
STEPPING IT UP:
You don't have to wait until bedtime to think of what you are grateful for. Try looking at life through the lens of gratitude.
When you are given lemons....look for a way to make lemonaid.
MAKE IT TANGIBLE:
Gratitude is a simple concept, but it isn't a tangible one. We have found it helps to have tangible tools to use while you cultivate your habit of gratitude.
The concept of gratitude rocks were made popular by Lee Brower who apprears in the book and movie "The Secret". Lee would put his gratitude rock in his pocket every morning and would think about what he was thankful for. He repeated this process when he emptied his pockets at night.,, and when ever he came in contact with it during the day.
The concept of a gratitude rock, is that having something tangible can help you to focus on what you're grateful for. Some people use rocks. Some people use coins. Other people use other items that are meaningful to them. Keep it somewhere that you'll encounter it several times a day, like in your pocket or purse. Whenever you touch it, you'll be reminded to think of something you're grateful for and it can help to increase that focus in your life.
We offer engraved rocks, Rock key chains, and tokens-of-gratitude. The full color two sided paper tokens-of-gratitude only cost $5.95 for 25. The small proceeds go 100% to supporting our mission of Spreading Global Gratitude.
You don't need one of our rocks to take the challenge , but it may enhance your experience and it will help us fund porgrams like our "early habits of gratitude" program for educators. But please, do what you are comfortable with, and it you prefer....use a shell or a rock you found on a beach.
Completing the challenge earns you a free metal token-of-gratitude.
Tip: Just get started.
POST-CHALLENGE GRATITUDE GAUGE:
When your 21 days end and you have cultivated your habit -of-gratitude, you will log back in, and take your temperature again.
It will be quick and painless.....and you will see evidence of the amazing new habit you have developed.
Again, we will collect the information for research purposes.
Sumbit your Post-gratitude-temperature gauge, and you are eligble to recieve a FREE Token-of-Gratitude coin. We normally charge $2.50 for these coins. Yours will be free for the cost of shipping.
You can keep it or pay-it-forward. It is yours. You have earned it.
Share your stories of gratitude with friends and family...or post them online here on our site. We would love to hear from you.
Maybe you will consider becoming an Envoy of Gratitude in your Nation, City or town.
Remember, we can do this....one starfish at a time. We can make a difference and make our world a better place for all of us. The people who started this mission are just ordinary people trying to help our fellow man. YOU CAN TOO!
THE RIPPLE EFFECT
Gratitude grows when it's expressed. Not only does it grow within yourself because you're focusing on gratitude. It also grows in others and out there in the world. There's a ripple effect when gratitude is expressed and it causes it to spread out from that initial expression of thankfulness - - like when you throw a rock into a body of water and the ripples move out further and further from the center. Doesn't that sound awesome? Can you imagine the effect if you touch one person with an expression of gratitude . . . and they touch one person . . . and they touch one person . . . and on and on?
“When you express gratitude for the blessings that come into your life, it not only encourages the universe to send you more, it also sees to it that those blessings remain.”
