Thanksgiving is right around the corner, but we don’t wait for the holiday season to display gratitude around the Alliance Concepts office. We frequently take stock of all the things worth celebrating in our lives, knowing that it will lift our mood and give us extra inspiration. These are a few of the methods we use to stay in touch with our grateful sides from one busy workday to another:
• Journaling: Gratitude journals are great because they allow us to really think about the positive things in our lives. Just as writing down our goals makes them seem more realistic, putting our proudest achievements on paper makes them come to life. The Grateful app is a tool we’ve found especially helpful in keeping track of what’s worth highlighting.
• Meditating: It’s amazing how much 10 minutes of focused deep breathing can change our outlooks. By thinking about our recent successes and visualising future wins, we give ourselves extra inspiration to excel. Quick meditation sessions also help to ward off any stress we might be feeling.
• Giving Back: We support good causes with our Alliance Concepts teammates on a regular basis, building up our senses of gratitude along the way. It’s rewarding to know we’re helping people who need it. We also gain new perspectives on just how lucky we are.
Showing gratitude leads to stronger relationships and higher levels of engagement in our Alliance Concepts workspace. To learn more about how we keep thankfulness at the front of our minds, follow us on Instagram.
