On June 25, Humble Warrior hosted an “Attitude of Gratitude Journaling Workshop” on Zoom. We were honored to partner with Sarah Barnett, outreach specialist for Wounded Warrior Project. During the workshop, participants were taught how to journal, reasons to journal, and benefits of journaling. The participants were emailed a handout and several journaling prompts to begin their journaling experience.
The remainder of the workshop was spent discussing how to create an “attitude of gratitude” journal as well as the benefits of being grateful. The participants were given personal and scientific evidence-based information on specific benefits of keeping a journal and of having an attitude of gratitude. Neuroscience Reveals: Gratitude Literally Rewires Your Brain to be Happier is a scientific evidence-based article that gives excellent information how to become more grateful as well as the benefits of being more grateful. Another article referenced during the workshop is a Weight Watchers’ article by Lisa Shouldice where she explains the benefits of and four ways to become more grateful.
During and after the informative session, the participants were given journaling prompts and an opportunity to share and ask questions. At the end of the workshop, the participants asked for another journaling workshop next month!
We have another journaling workshop planned with Wounded Warrior Project on July 30, 2020, from 3:00-4:30. Humble Warrior is also making plans for a “Benefits of Plant Based Eating Class” via Zoom or in person, a simple yoga and mindfulness/meditation workshop in person, and a one-day retreat in the fall. For more information, contact Sarah Barnett at SBarnett@woundedwarriorproject.
