Why we love Whakawhetai (Gratitude) O'Clock
Interestingly (and amazingly), gratitude is linked to overall happiness. Research shows that regularly writing down what we're thankful for:
- evokes positive feelings and emotions
- reminds us of all the things and people who contribute to our lives
- helps build appreciation, empathy and kindness.
But we don’t come by an ‘attitude of gratitude’ naturally! We need to learn and practice – and that's what this activity is all about!
