Working on gratitude helps us to be thankful and appreciate what we have in our lives, rather than focusing on what we don鈥檛 have or what we want. When we practise being grateful, we start to scan the world to look for positives; this only takes 21 days! Practising gratitude everyday increases our levels of energy, helps us to feel happier and more focused, determined and optimistic. It even helps us have a better sleep, lower levels of anxiety and depression and we are less likely to get sick. So many benefits 鈥 let鈥檚 all try to be grateful for the things and people in our lives every day!

Whole Family Activity: Gratitude Scavenger Hunt

You can hunt for real things, or you can also do this using magazines or pictures from the internet 鈥fter a set amount of time hunting, come back together, have a look at what each person collected and let them explain why they are grateful for each item. Family Habit Builder: Every night at dinner, have each person talk about their favourite thing about that day.

It is essential we continue to support our young people to build the capacity to practice these skills through GEM as each day we see the need for these in a stressful school environment.
