Gratitude Workshop – With Dr. Glenn Fox, PhD
Gratitude is more than just part of holiday traditions, it is an integral part of C4 Ranch programs. Studies have shown that gratitude helps build resilience and family togetherness. On November 19, 2020, The C4 Foundation held a virtual Gratitude Workshop with our very own Dr. Glenn Fox. It was an informative event with 15 SEAL families attending. The 60-minute workshop featured the background on the science of gratitude and most importantly, ways to implement gratitude in the upcoming holiday season of family celebrations and traditions, and what not to do when it comes to gratitude. Every family that participated will receive a C4 Family Paddle Connection Kit that has activities and guides for creating individual family paddles that has a family name and a customized crest carved into it.
Gratitude can also help ALL families stay connected and focus on what REALLY matters. Our C4 Gratitude Workshop brings awareness to count our blessings rather than recounting our problems, especially during these daunting times in the world. A gratitude mindset will change perspective on the very purpose and joy of life. No matter our situation, showing gratitude for our privileges is a fast-acting and long-lasting prescription to a happier life. Although gratitude does not spare us from sorrow, sadness, grief and pain, it does soothe our feelings. So we encourage you to look for the positive in everything, and to give thanks.
