The 2013 Edition – Lisa Ryan’s “5 Thank You’s A Day” Gratitude Challenge

What if 30 days from now you were experiencing less grief?

Whether from:

  • your loved one’s passing
  • your unemployment
  • your rocky relationship

What would life look and feel like if your heart was filled with more gratitude?

Well that is the idea behind Lisa Ryan’s “5 Thank-You’s A Day 30 Day Challenge” – to fill your heart and consequently your life with more gratitude.

Last Year

I took the challenge last year and it got me to:

  • think more about gratitude’s role in my life
  • look at the people, places, things and events in my life with more gratitude

Lisa is running the challenge again this year starting June 1st and I will be taking it.


Because developing an attitude of gratitude take practice and everyone needs a refresher course from time to time.

The Program

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to simply say or write 5 Thank You’s each and every day in the month of June.  You can do this in 5 ways:

  1. Write down 5 things you are grateful for (Each entry is one Thank You)
  2. Express sincere appreciate verbally (each time counts as one Thank You)
  3. Send a thank you note (each note counts as one Thank You)
  4. Send a letter of appreciation (each letter counts as one Thank You)
  5. Meditate on gratitude for 5 minutes.

When you participate you’ll receive:

  •  A short daily inspirational video to keep you motivated
  •  A newly revised and updated “Thank You Notes” Workbook
  •  Entry into a weekly drawing to win a gratitude book, audio program or movie
