What’s a gratitude lunch?
It’s a meal you share with your coworkers, where you express gratitude. Being grateful isn’t limited to the holidays. Sure, it’s great to go around the table during the holidays to give thanks, but really, we should be giving thanks daily!
Actively thinking about the things you’re grateful for can have lasting and powerful impacts on your mindset and outlook. A gratitude lunch doesn’t have to be fancy. It can be as simple as pizza or tacos with your team. It doesn’t involve baking pies and roasting turkeys (although it certainly can if the mood strikes).
Create a prompt:
You can always use the standard “what are you grateful for today? OR maybe one of these…
* What is one non-material thing that you couldn’t live without?
* What has changed in the last year that you are grateful for?
* Who do you appreciate?
* What’s your favorite childhood memory?
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It illuminates all of the incredible, tiny elements that weave together to comprise our own unique tapestry of the human experience. The more that we focus our mind on all that we have in our lives, the more it seems like we have to be grateful for.
Gratitude can change your perspective on your life, which is key to living with greater happiness and satisfaction.
