Check out our new grateful card deck designed to help you have more meaningful conversations.

Tell Me Something Good

Say thanks before dinner to help express appreciation for the food that nourishes your body and the experience of enjoying a meal together with others.  You can even go around the table and have everyone say one thing that they’re grateful for. Bert and John Jacobs, the Founders of Life is Good, started doing this when they were kids.  No matter what hardships they faced as a family, no matter what was happening, their mother Joan made one request every night at the dinner table: “Tell me something good today.”  What a great way to practice gratitude on a daily basis.

  • What a great idea Scott. Definitely going to try doing this at dinner time. It’s just full as our busy lives are nowadays, it would be a good way to reflect on the positive things throughout the day instead of what went wrong.
