It seems like the entire world has been thrown into holiday chaos, with stores packed, calendars overflowing with holiday events, people scrambling for gift ideas and family members making last-minute travel plans. But in the midst of all of the stress and strife that comes with a busy holiday season, it can be all too easy to forget the softer, gentler side of the winter holidays.
If you are feeling a little stressed out (or even a little cynical), take a moment out of your day to check out The Gratitude Challenge. This project, which was started by Tiny Prints staffers as a way to help us stay on the brighter side of life, has taken off into a global movement dedicated to daily appreciation of life’s little blessings. Here’s how you can get involved:
- Download the Gratitude from A to Z activity, which asks you to make a quick list of all the things you feel most grateful for using the alphabet as a guide
- Download our 7-Day or 21-Day Gratitude Challenge Calendars for little daily activities for you and your family members to participate in all season long
- You can even purchase these gorgeous thank you cards designed by actress Angela Kinsey from “The Office” specifically for The Gratitude Challenge. The proceeds will benefit KaBOOM!, an organization dedicated to providing a safe place to play for every child in America.
Perfect as a personalized gift for friends or as your post-Christmas thank you notes, these lovely little designs are sure to help you appreciate every little blessing life sends your way this season!
