Gratitude Attitude: The Gift That Keeps Giving
Thursday, December 03, 2020 @ 7:00 PM

To celebrate HEPL's Season of Gratitude, Sarah Ratekin, Chief Happiness Officer of Happiness is Courage, Inc., is offering this series of interactive workshops on how gratitude practices can positively impact your life. Take a look at the January workshop, too!


Many of us focus on gratitude during November, but by the time December rolls around, we're well on our way to the STRESS and disruption that the holidays can bring to our lives--and haven't we had enough of that already this year?!

In this interactive, virtual conversation Sarah Ratekin will help us explore the ways that cultivating a "gratitude attitude" can be a gift to ourselves and the people around us. We will look at some of the physical, emotional, and social benefits of gratitude, along with easy ways to start (and sustain) your own personal gratitude practice!" Registration with email required for Zoom meeting invitation.
