The Benefits of Gratitude & Positive Affirmations

The purpose of this virtual discussion-based workshop is to increase participants' understanding of the benefits of gratitude and positive affirmations and how they can impact the other areas of our lives and overall well-being.

By the end of this workshop, participants will:

  • Learn the different names used for positive affirmations and create their own;

  • Be able to explain at least two of the seven scientifically proven benefits of gratitude;

  • Become familiar with the framework of the eight dimensions of wellness and recognize that all areas of their lives are not independent of each other; and

  • Have an increased understanding of the benefits of journaling.


The one-time registration fee of $49 includes a printable workbook and personal assessment form for each participant. For group rates and invoicing, please send an email to
