Gratitude practice

There have been many views on how we can use this period of physical distancing and self-isolation as a time to take stock of what was working and what wasn’t in our lives before we were suddenly hit with this huge disruption.
How can you express sincere gratitude when a gift you are given is something you don’t like, if you feel it hasn’t been chosen with you in mind, or might even have been re-gifted?
This year, I’ve had the good fortune to work on a research project investigating the outcomes of an increased focus on gratitude by educators in leadership roles in early childhood centres.
Even if we have can find the authentic place within ourselves to sincerely express our gratitude, we need to be able to put ourselves in the shoes of the person we wish to express our gratitude to.

About the Blog

Welcome to my blog, Gratitude in Practice. My mission is to translate gratitude research – my own and others’ – into practical strategies that are relevant to the current dilemmas and challenges we face. You will find the relevance of gratitude as we explore topics ranging from how gratitude helps us when we are busy or in difficult relationships to its role in elite sport. I hope you enjoy engaging with these ideas and if so, please share it with others or invite them to sign up to my newsletter. I would also love to hear your ideas, whether it’s a comment on a particular blog, or if you have topics/questions you would like me to write about, so please contact me here.
