Answers to your Art of Gratitude questions
Art of Gratitude sends you an email every day. It has three boxes for entering the three things you’re grateful for that day. After the “Save your gratitudes!” button in the email, your gratitudes are posted to your personal (and private) profile page. For more info, you can also watch our video.
Tuning in to what you’re grateful for has a number of benefits. Recent scientific research has demonstrated it can lead to stronger immune systems and lower blood pressure, higher levels of positive emotions, more joy, optimism and happiness, acting with more generosity and compassion, and feeling less lonely and isolated.
No, only you can see what you post. Everything you submit to Art of Gratitude is private and accessible only by you — this includes your name, profile picture, and the gratitudes to you enter.
Yes, you can share them on Facebook and Twitter using the buttons next to each one. For Facebook, this will post to your Facebook stream or you can share your gratitude directly with a single friend. And for Twitter you can tweet your gratitude to your friends.
Once you complete your 30 Days of Gratitude challenge, you’ll have the option to continue receiving the daily Art of Gratitude email reminder. Art of Gratitude can then become a place where you keep a personal history of what you’re grateful for over time and return to see how this simple practice of appreciation has changed your outlook, improved your relationships, and affected your life.
Your gratitudes can be anything — what you had for breakfast, your favorite sweater, the temperature of the room. If you get stuck you can just look around you and see what’s there that you appreciate. Since Art of Gratitude is about developing a practice of gratitude, you can start with anything. And the more you do it, the easier it will become.
