In this episode, Jamie, Avery, and Lucy talk about gratitude! We discuss what gratitude entails, why it matters, and benefits of gratitude (physically, emotionally, and socially). We also talk about what gets in the way of gratitude, share personal examples of who and what we’re grateful for, talk about disingenuous gratitude, explore the influences of media and consumerism on gratitude, and discuss ways to incorporate more gratitude practices into our lives. Lastly, we encourage our listeners to engage in the #fuckingthankful challenge with us!
Do try this at home:
- Ask yourself, “What is there to be thankful for?”, particularly when you are experiencing difficult emotions.
- Pick a gratitude practice and try it out!
- Associate what you are thankful for with the word “gift.”
