INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CHALLENGE:
We’re thrilled that you’ve decided to join us, and look forward to hearing about your experiences. Here’s how it works:
Every day, we will send you an email with a specific gratitude prompt or exercise. We suggest that you keep an actual journal, so that you can record your experiences in a private and un-self-conscious way. JOMO Project founder Catherine Price, wrote a gratitude journal that can be purchased here: Gratitude Journal.
We believe in the value of taking time away from our screens, and want to support those of you who would prefer not to check your email over the weekend. You should always feel free to take a break from the “official” challenge on Saturday and Sunday and use those days however you would like. For example, you could repeat a prompt that you found inspiring, or catch up on days that you’ve missed during the week, or simply set aside some time to do something nourishing for yourself.
We also encourage you to share some of your insights and answers on social media, using the hashtag #30DaysofGratitude—and to follow the hashtag to hear about other people’s experiences during the challenge. (Each day will have a specific hashtag, in case you want to see all the responses from that particular prompt, i.e. #GratitudeDayX).
All of the challenges from theJOMOproject.com are more fun—and often more rewarding—when done with other people. Feel free to invite friends and loved ones to join you by sharing the sign up link.
You may notice that some prompts are repeated several times throughout the challenge. This is to solidify them as habits, and also to give you a chance to notice how your answers and experiences develop and change over time.
A note on social media: social media can be a wonderful way to share your experiences with the #30DaysofGratitude challenge, and to get inspiration and feelings of community from other participants. With that said, social media sites and apps are specifically designed to collect information about us and get us to spend far longer on them than we might intend. To counteract this, we suggest being careful about what you post. We also suggest specifically searching for/following the #30DaysofGratitude hashtag, to make it easier to pop in and out of social media for inspiration without getting sucked in.
Thank you again for joining us. We’re grateful to have you!
