The Chesapeake Hosts Gratitude Workshop

Gratitude Activity for Senior Residents at The Chesapeake

What are you thankful for? That was the question posed to participants at The Chesapeake’s independent living community Newport News, VA. gratitude workshop held on November 16.

With Thanksgiving just 10 days away, it seems appropriate that November marks National Gratitude Month. To celebrate, our health and wellness team partners with the National Institute for Fitness & Sport have placed an additional focus on being thankful.

At the workshop, residents were given the opportunity to write down 50 things they are thankful for and transfer those grateful thoughts to an artificial pumpkin as a keepsake. Participants were also given three thank you cards to send to people they are thankful for.
