Educator Resources & Activities

Create a gratitude journal with Greater Good's Thnx4 Gratitude challenge.


The goals of Thnx4 are to promote the practice of gratitude and raise awareness about the research-based benefits of gratitude. When we deliberately focus on feeling and expressing gratitude, we build our muscles for noticing the positive people and events in our lives that we might otherwise take for granted.
