Creating Gratitude Journals Co-Taught Lesson
March 17 at 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDTFree Funded by Microsoft Canada
The impact of being grateful for what you have
Did you know that we all have things to be grateful for?
Things that are so small that we don’t take the time to recognize them. Gratitude journals help us pay attention to the small things in life and bring recognized moments of happiness to our everyday.
In this lesson, we’ll chat about the why behind gratitude, and begin our own journey by building our own gratitude journal using Microsoft OneNote.
Join us for this 60-minute lesson as we discover, not only how to practice gratitude and mindfulness, but all the things you have to be grateful for!
