Create Your Own Gratitude Jar

Positive Psychology focuses on the positive influences that underpin wellbeing. It explores positive emotions, engagement, relationships, meaning and accomplishments – all factors which protect us against burnout, isolation, boredom and lack of autonomy.

The more we express what we appreciate, the more we realise what abundance and richness our lives can be filled with. It's not necessarily the big and bold things we need to express gratitude for. Relatively smaller things like a yummy lunch, a smile from a stranger, a new flower or the warmth of the sun can be impactful when you notice them.

How to Use this Resource

This resource is best used daily. Find a place where you feel at peace. Block out 5 minutes for yourself by setting a timer. Choose a moment from today and write it on the jar. As you colour or decorate your jar, reflect on why that moment was your highlight for the day.

Finding the 'why' here is important. Consider why that person, event or moment in time made you feel how you did. Name the emotions you felt. Sharing your gratitude with someone adds a deeper layer to our own sense of appreciation, and helps them feel valued, important and connected.

Creating your Jar

  • Grab a jar out of the cupboard. It doesn't have to be anything fancy. An old jam, spread or coffee jar will do.
  • Give it a clean. You might like to add some decorations to it like the examples on the next page.
  • Fold your note each day and place it in the jar
  • Open up your jar at the end of each week/month and read all the wonderful things you have experienced!
