Hellllooo Friends. This is your DrawTogether Podcast speedy-delivery system, arriving with a special podcast just in time for the holiday week ahead.
This week we revisit one of our earliest DT Podcast episodes: Gratitude. Press play on the arrow above or find us over on iTunes (be sure to leave some stars and a review if you listen over there - it really helps us out.)
In the USA, the Thanksgiving holiday is a joyous time for some, a challenging time for others, and a conflicting time for many. No matter how the holiday itself makes you feel, it’s always a great opportunity to engage in the stress-reducing, relationship-improving practice of giving thanks for things we appreciate in life - aka Gratitude.
Drawing is a great way for kids (and all of us) to begin a gratitude practice. Kids can do this at home in their art studio (aka the kitchen table) or as a group in a class or after school program, or as a family. And if you/your kids listen to the DrawTogether podcast as a group, this is a great chance to draw and share out loud what you are grateful for.
Grab your paper and pens and colors and get ready get grateful. I guarantee a 32.3% increase in mood elevation and 41.4% perspective shift by the time 8 minute podcast is up. (Go on, do a study and prove me wrong - I dare you.)
As always, if you want to share your gratitude drawings, post them on Instagram and tag DrawTogether.Studio - we’d love to see them and share them with the world.
And those of you subscribed to the Grown-Ups Table, there’s more Gratitude drawing projects for you coming at you on Sunday, including a few guest prompts from wonderful folks like. (If you’re not at the GUT and you want to be, hit that button above.)
Hope all this helps with some anxiety-busting, stress-reducing, and heart-growing.
And most of all, I’m grateful for YOU.
