100 Days of Gratitude Challenge

So, here we are. It’s late September. Fall has officially begun, but today marks another significant moment. We are 100 days away from 2020 – say what!? And while most of us (myself included!), are focused on all the fall things and enjoying this brand new season, I want kick off something new with you all – a 100 Days of Gratitude Challenge.

What’s the point of expressing your gratitude? Several studies show that expressing gratitude regularly has been shown to improve physical and mental health. It helps us better appreciate our bodies and relationships (amongst other things!) and that in return makes us happier all around.

“Gratitude is something that leads to much more sustainable forms of happiness, because it’s not based in that immediate gratification; it’s a frame of mind,”

– Emma Seppälä, A Happiness Researcher

So, for the next 100 days, I’m going to update this post with the three things I am thankful for on that given day. There are many proven benefits of expressing gratitude, and while I try to think about what I’m grateful for on a daily basis, I know I can do a better job. So, that’s why I came up with this challenge. My hope is it encourages you to think about what you’re grateful for and to even do a 100 Days of Gratitude Challenge yourself!

Since I’m a serial over-thinker, my goal with this is to keep it simple and update this list each day, with the first three things that come to mind. I can’t promise these will be profound, and I can’t promise I won’t repeat myself, but I am committed to doing it each day.
