I recently read an article about gratitude. In this article, the author talked about gratitude exercises; spending five minutes a day to think about or write about what you are grateful for. It doesn’t have to be big and earth shattering. Your gratitude can simply be for the cup of coffee you had this morning. It can be about the new band you found that gets you jamming on the way to work. Whatever made you smile, laugh, or just put you in a great mood. Think about those things and reflect on them. What about it made you feel good? How can you bring that back into your life each day and share your experiences with others?

A simple exercise like this can truly change you.

At Clickstop, we love showing our gratitude for each other and for things in our lives.

For the last few weeks, employees had the chance to come to the media room and do a quick video showing appreciation for one or many of their co-workers. And even though many people are completely intimidated by the video camera, we had a good 30 or so people participate. Employees from every team came to express their gratitude towards the many hard-working, dedicated friends they have right here.  Being behind the camera capturing these moments is exciting. Not only does it give me a daily dose of gratitude, but reaffirms the reasons I have chosen Clickstop as my career.

Last week we tied all of our gratitude together into one big celebration.  For the afternoon, employees came outside to try to dunk a leadership team member in a dunk tank! Employees who recognized someone automatically earned a softball and anyone else could purchase softballs – all of the money going towards Clickstop Cares. We had basketball and bags games going throughout the day and Peppy’s Ice Cream even came to help everyone battle the heat.  The day was a success and left everyone feeling refreshed and ready to conquer another week!

So if you ever need a pick-me-up in the middle of your day, just pause for a few minutes and think of the things you are grateful for. Let it soak into you and refresh your mind. Trust us, it is worth it.
