Dartmouth Middle School Launches 30 Days of Gratitude Challenge

Each day in the Month of March, students and staff are encouraged to come by the office during their lunch and complete a gratitude activity. The activities include things like  making a list of 5 things they love about themselves, complimenting someone, starting a gratitude journal, spending quality time with a loved one, and doing a random act of kindness. Each day holds a different activity prompt with a goal of encouraging students and staff to focus on things that make them grateful.

A Harvard University study in Positive Psychology Research found that, gratitude is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness. Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships.
