Ways to Practice Gratitude

Find things to be grateful for. It can affect your mood and well-being in a really positive way (source). Try to “[c]ount your blessings” or “[k]eep a gratitude journal” (source). Try thanking someone via a note or even just “think[ing] about someone who has done something nice for you” (source).

Breathing Exercises

Doing some breathing exercises can help you relax yourself— check these simple breathing exercises out (source).

Some other ways to de-stress

Get out a journal and just journal or draw whatever you think of, even if it’s messy. Journaling can help you “reduce stress” (source). Furthermore, “the creation of art can provide… a distraction from stressful thoughts and experiences…” (source). Going outside and spending time in nature can also help with your well-being (source).


Meditating can be a highly effective way to destress (source). You can check out this one-minute meditation, this one-minute meditation, or this 10-minute meditation for stress. Also, try using the HeadSpace website or downloading the HeadSpace App.

More Resources

For more resources, check out the sources that are used throughout this webpage– many include more information on wellness practices, in addition to research. You can also take a look at the Greater Good Science Center website from UC Berkeley for more research-based wellness practices (Ms. Lesser’s recommendation!).
