It is an absolute honor to work with kind, curious students who are eager and committed to creating a post-graduate life that provides meaning and purpose. Much of my work is asking meaningful questions that offer fodder for growth. As we head into a reflection, rest, and gratitude period, I wanted to share some of my favorite gratitude questions that trigger meaningful and heartful conversations.
The more gratitude we practice, the happier we become. Research proves that active habits in consciously showing and sharing gratitude improve self-esteem, self-efficacy, and general outlook. To learn more about the research, check out this article from Berkley.
To prepare our students for the application plan, we are inspired by Warren Berger’s book “More Beautiful Questions” to mine for passion, purpose, and identity development.
TIP: Download our Gratitude exercise and create a habit of talking with students about what matters most to them.
