A grateful community

Thankfulness has long been proven to help create a sense of wellbeing. A burgeoning area of research, impacts of positive psychology continue to be studied, but according to an article from Harvard Medical School “expressing thanks may be one of the simplest ways to feel better.”
Big Sky Community Organization’s (BSCO) Community Programs Committee which was created to meet the behavioral health needs of the community during COVID-19 is taking the concept of positive psychology to the streets with the Big Sky Community Gratitude Challenge.
“The group of program partners have created a month-long community gratitude event, to reflect and share what we are thankful for in a Gratitude Journal. We ask participants to reflect daily on the things they are most thankful for and value during the difficult times this past year,” according to a press release.
Gratitude Journals can be found at the Hungry Moose, Quick Prints Big Sky, BSCO office, Town Center office, Lone Peak Performance, Santosha Wellness Center, and the Big Sky Chamber of Commerce.
“We want to give participants an opportunity to practice self-reflection and appreciate all the good within our community and our daily lives,” per the release.
