2 weeks of gratitude prompts for your team (or you!)

Published about 2 years ago • 1 min read

Hey Reader,

We're just wrapping up our gratitude challenge here. It was a mellow challenge, with most of the work being internal and meditative. I've heard some great feedback from people, particularly about the prompts that forced them to acknowledge the things they are doing well right now, that can be so hard!

Today I want to share with you the 14 prompts we used, so you can run this challenge with your team. Or just with yourself! If you have found yourself in negative thought patterns like guilt, beating yourself up, judging others, etc, this is a good way to shake some of those and practice more grateful patterns.

I scheduled each post in Slack so they went up at the end of the day, with people writing on them the next morning. With our distributed team this allowed everyone to write in the morning if they chose to.

Here are the prompts:

  1. Name 3 things that always put a smile on your face.
  2. Write down 5 things you are doing well currently.
  3. What about your upbringing are you most grateful for?
  4. What about nature are you grateful for?
  5. Write a letter of gratitude to someone in your life. You don’t even have to send it, though you can if you want. You can even write to someone who is no longer living.
  6. List 5 things you love about your home.
  7. Write down 3 characteristics or qualities about yourself that you are grateful for.
  8. What about your career or job are you grateful for?
  9. Write about something you did to make someone else happy.
  10. One of the best experiences of my life was…I am grateful for that experience because…
  11. What skills do you have that you are grateful for?
  12. Remember a success you had, and write your Oscar acceptance speech describing who helped you achieve it.
  13. Write down your basic needs that are met, and about how you are grateful for that.
  14. Write about a favorite hobby - why do you love it, how does it make you feel?

Let me know if you try this with your team, or yourself!

Take care,

Elizabeth

Hello Reader, It's been a while since I've written to you!

Hey Reader, Last month we did a tough challenge here at ConvertKit. We tried to lower the amount of time we spend on our phones. 😬 It was just as hard as you might imagine! With our focus this year on mental health, there was no way we could avoid this. Our phones are detrimental to our mental health, in so many ways. Our challenge was to spend 2 hours less on our phones every day for 2 weeks. Each person looked at their average screen time and subtracted 2 hours, and that was their daily...
