    My Gratitude Journal
     
    According to practitioners at the Mayo Clinic Health System, practicing mindful thankfulness is one way to boost spirits, feel happier, and enhance overall health. They also suggest that in addition to daily journaling, individuals complete at least one act of kindness each day.

    Whether at home or in the classroom, adults can help students cope with stress by keeping them focused on being thankful. The templates below can help you get your students started.  Try reserving a specific time each day and setting a goal of 30 days to get your students in the habit. Some teachers practice "Mindful Monday" and have students journal at the beginning of each week.

    If your students need help getting started, CreativeChild.com offers a month of prompts and random acts of kindness.
