This Exercise Will Make You Awesome

July 29, 2017

What will make you awesome?

A. A jar will make you awesome.

What is the Jar of Awesome?

The Jar of Awesome aligns with Growing With Gratitude’s  Gratitude Jar activity. The Gratitude Jar is a very cool class and family activity.

Are you someone who is looking for ways to build positive habits in your life and your families life?

If so, the Jar of Awesome  is a very cool activity to do just that. It is brilliant for the classroom and home.

How It Works

  • Find a jar and label it THE JAR OF AWESOME
  • At the end of the day at school or with your family at night, write down on a small piece of paper something that happened during the day that was awesome, no matter how big or small.
  • Place the piece of paper in your JAR OF AWESOME
  • When you are feeling down or uncreative or whatever it might be, go back through the JAR OF AWESOME and read over the piece of paper.

Why the Jar of Awesome

The Jar of Awesome is a really easy habit to create. It allows you and your students/children to feel good about yourself/themselves and to feel happy. And when you feel good about yourself, you are more creative and are able to focus, therefore producing at a more optimum level.

Try it, it works.

Simple positive habit forming activities are so important to teach children, but just as important for adults. Our focus at Growing With Gratitude is to help teach children and adults positive habits. When we practice positive habits such as gratitude, Kindness, positive reflection (Jar of Awesome) and optimism we tend to:

  • cope better with stress and trauma
  • have more friends and social support
  • are more productive and creative at school & work
  • are better leaders and negotiators
  • are less depressed and anxious
  • have better jobs later in life and make more money
  • and have more fulfilling relationships with friends, family and colleagues.

The Jar of Awesome is another engaging option to help cultivate positive habits.
