Join the Gratitude Challenge!

Studies show that people who write down just a few things each day can improve their overall level of focus, happiness and wellbeing. The holidays can be tough for many of us, so collectively our challenge is to write down 3-5 things we are thankful for each day during November and December. It's easier than going to the gym, and might actually help you get there! Sign up, get started and then send us your personal stories of how a daily practice of gratitude affected your holidays this year.
