The Thankfulness Project 

Goal: To lift up NZer's mental health by promoting the daily use of Thankfulness

What the Thankfulness Project is about:

Thankfulness is great for your Mental Healthiness.

 

When you think about what you do have and what is going well instead of what you don't have and what is going wrong, you will have a happier and more optimistic day. Mental Healthiness is as important as physical health and we believe that gratitude and thankfulness practiced daily creates better mental healthiness. We want to see New Zealand have great mental health and for suicide and depression rates to drop.

The goal of the Thankfulness project: 

To give weekly, monthly and yearly inspiration and education on the power of Thankfulness to improve the quality of everyday life for all New Zealanders

 

We believe that Thankfulness:

  • Empowers the mind to focus on positives

  • Creates thought process that is conducive to problem-solving

  • Counteracts negative thinking

  • Helps people to see how good their life really is

  • Is simple to understand and apply

  • Has a contagious uplifting effect on those around us

  • Reduces the need to buy more to be happy

  • Increases contentedness

  • Thankfulness leads to wanting to give to others from a new sense of how much and how good our lives are

 

How:

Through the sharing of the thankfulness message to the public through

 

Advertising, newspaper, tv, radio

Social media posts and videos

School programs

Bumper stickers

Apparel; T-shirts and hats

 

Why:

To counteract negative societal mental healthiness trends.

Why we use the term 'Mental Healthiness'

 

People understand the term 'physical health' and that everyone has physical health. 

A common perception when 'Mental Health' is mentioned seems to be in reference to poor mental. 

Mental Healthiness is a term we use to help people understand that as we all have physical health, that we all have mental health.
