It’s World Gratitude Day on September 21 and to celebrate its 100th Anniversary, Pilot Pen will put up a huge gratitude wall in Sydney’s Martin Place where people are encouraged to come and express what they’re grateful for, have a free personalised gratitude card written for them by a professional calligrapher, watch street artists in action, grab a free coffee and more.
Studies have shown that regularly practising gratitude journaling can make you more successful, improve your mental and physical wellbeing, and increase your happiness by up to 25 per cent so there’s never been a better time to come on down, pick up a pen and say thanks.
Gratitude expert and founder of The Self-Love Project, Eloise King, says practicing gratitude is an ancient notion which all religious traditions have encouraged since their inception; and now scientific, agnostic and atheist communities are seeing the benefits too.
“Expressing gratitude increases oxytocins (the love molecule) and creates stronger connections and bonds,” she says.
Mr John Johnson, marketing manager, Pilot Pen Australia said; “We’re very grateful for the public’s support over the last one hundred years and are thrilled to see that in spite of the rise in technology, writing by hand is back in fashion, with the increase in gratitude journaling and calligraphy.”
