Express Gratitude Together Before Family Meals

Plate with Thank You

Saying grace together before each family meal is a very simple way of consistently expressing gratitude.

Why bother?

More gratitude correlates to:

  • higher grades,
  • more life satisfaction,
  • more social integration,
  • less depression,
  • less envy,
  • and (in my opinion) less entitlement.

Need a non-religious pre-meal ritual?

Try ours. Hold hands before digging in, and simply say:

“For what we are about to receive, may we be truly thankful.”

That’s it. Short, sweet, and grateful.
