Gratitude is one of the most powerful tools we have at our fingertips to improve our wellbeing, at home and at work. Expressing gratitude has loads of benefits including reduced depression, improved sleep, improved psychological wellbeing, and even improved immune system function.
When we express gratitude, it’s not just us that benefits. If you direct your gratitude towards a person, they also feel the benefit. But what’s even cooler is that just experiencing someone express gratitude also benefits the observers (e.g. in the same meeting, on the same call) .
An old colleague of mine told me recently that his team each share something they’re grateful for at the beginning of their morning stand up. This is SUCH an easy way make gratitude a habit, takes only a few seconds per person and will help your whole team feel happier. It’s something I’ve started on our team, and it sets the day up in a really lovely way. Will you give it a go?
