Here are a few helpful tips:
Keep your Gratitude Jar in a visible place in the house.
Pick a time of day to write down what you're grateful for on the small pieces of paper. Some families like to do it at dinner when you gather together and recount the happenings of your days. You can stuff in 1 note a day, or 100. Whatever floats your boat.
When we finish the Gratitude Challenge or whenever you need a pick me up, pull a gratitude note out . It will be a reminder of the wonderful things that occurred during WAG. Keep this jar going for longer than the week. Encourage family members to participate. Some people choose to have one jar per year.
