why is gratitude so important?
Gratitude is one of the simplest things you can do to have a positive impact on your life. In fact, studies show that practicing gratitude increases overall feelings of happiness and reduces depression, along with a host of other benefits.
This week, we’re asking you to embrace the attitude of gratitude with 99 Walks. Along the way, please share your journey with us using #99thankyous on social media.
Let’s do this!
How it works
During the week, we’ll ask you to complete five tasks, each one designed to show gratitude to the important people in your life. These tasks can be completed at your own pace — all in one day or spread throughout the week.
MEET dr. claudia beeny, founder of house of shine who will guide us through the week!
An experienced educator, Claudia holds a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Higher Education/Higher Education Administration, and a Master of Education in College Student Counseling and Personnel Services, from The University of Georgia. She also holds a Bachelor of Science degree in History from Arizona State University.
The seed for House of Shine was planted in 2007, when Claudia started a blog called Highlowaha, in which she shared one creative idea a day, never repeating the same idea twice. The blog’s readership grew, and she eventually launched a website, hired staff, and began creating curriculum and hosting workshops on a regular basis. Today, House of Shine has become an ambitious non-profit organization that strives to help women and children discover their innate talents and gifts and use them to shine.
