WHY IT MATTERS
Many seniors (and their caretakers) experience depression, social isolation and general stress due to physical and emotional conditions that come with getting older.
With scalable mental practice, cultivating gratitude can have tremendous scientific benefits on anyone's quality of life.
Cultivating Gratitude Can:
Open the door to more relationships
Improve physical and psychological health.
Enhance empathy and reduce aggression.
Help people sleep better.
Improve self-esteem, and
Gratitude increases mental strength.
You don't have to be an expert at this, thankfully, in fact, you need no experience at all. All the parts of the cultivating gratitude program can be used with small to large groups or one-on-one. You might consider a Friday afternoon session to round off your week in a positive way.
Did you know just searching for something that makes you grateful makes your brain happier? Cultivating gratitude can be like choosing your own adventure. Pick up a random activity card (the record-sized ones) read it out loud and follow the directions. With the smaller flash cards use them as tools for conversation and reminiscence.
"It is impossible to feel grateful and depressed in the same moment."
