November Gratitude Tip Ideas:

  • Make a collage of all of the big and little things you are grateful for, then hang it somewhere you will see it everyday!
  • Write a note or card to someone to show them your gratitude.
  • Do a random act of kindness. (i.e. donate clothes, help someone carry their groceries, open a door, volunteer at the food bank.)
  • Do a gratitude visit. Go out of your way to have a face to face conversation with someone and show your appreciation.
