After our Gratitude post last week, some of you contacted us to ask if ask if we could share a list of detailed prompts for practicing gratitude with one or more people (personal or professional).
Changing or starting a new behavior can be easier when you have a support system. We’d love to support you in doing this and are so pleased that you reached out!
Consider using any one or more of the questions below (or modify as needed) to help engage others in practicing gratitude with you. You’ll find that we’ve left them basic enough so that you could use them in discussions in both your personal and professional life.
- How have you grown?
- What have you learned from a difficult experience?
- What have you learned from someone else’s experience?
- What character traits of yours helped you through a difficult conversation?
- What spot at home or work brings you comfort?
- What gifts or talents have you shared with your world?
- What’s gone well?
- What sights, sounds, smells, or tastes, brought you joy?
- What made you laugh or put a smile on your face?
- How did someone make your work or personal life easier?
- Who are you grateful for?
- What team or group accomplishments or encounters are you proud of?
Whether it’s one colleague or friend, or a group of workmates or loved ones, you’ll find greater success and deepened relationships by engaging in a shared gratitude practice.
This week, consider one or more people in your life you could share a gratitude practice with and invite them to join you.
Let us know how it goes!
