DFAS 30 Days of Gratitude A Month of Mindfulness

The challenge kicks off on November 1st, 2022, and will run through November 30th, 2022.  The autumn season brings with it many celebrations and family gatherings. As we come together with loved ones during the holidays, we challenge employees to take time each day to be grateful. 

30 Days of Gratitude is all about mindful journaling.  The challenge is designed to encourage YOU to take time to focus on self-reflection and  to remember to express appreciation for the special people in your life.   

I embolden you to invite your family, friends, and colleagues to take a moment each day to take this journey with you.  Their support will certainly add to your enjoyment and will help you to remember the importance of gratitude each and every day.  

All participants will receive an e-journal complete with daily reflection themes. Weekly emails will be sent to participants with supplemental information, as well as tips to help you stay on track.

2022 Theme:Jars of Joy. this year’s  journaling experience challenges participants to keep a “Gratitude Jar” . After journaling for the day, take a moment to  write 1 word or 1 sentence that best describes the feelings invoked for that day’s entry, and add it to the jar. Employees are encouraged to get creative and decorate their Jars of Joy.  On December 1 and beyond, employees can reflect on what they added to the jar.

Make it a Family Activity:  Use the gratitude jar as a place to record and store everything you are thankful for.  For the month of November, have the family participate  by adding a visual reminder to the jar every day. Consider taking time during the holidays to review all the blessings collected, and reflect on what they mean to everyone.   

Many find journaling therapeutic, as it can aid tremendously in lowering your stress levels.  I am confident that you will gain an appreciation for written therapy and perhaps will consider adding some aspects of journaling into your life beyond the challenge.
