The Orana Gratitude Wall
The Orana Gratitude Wall began in April at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic while everyone was physically isolating, as a reminder to help everyone reflect on what they are grateful and thankful for and remember them visually. The Gratitude Wall is now a dedicated space at Orana’s Netley office, where staff from around Orana have expressed their appreciation and gratitude.
Staff sent through comments, observations or a photo to put up on the Gratitude Wall, either anonymously or if really brave, a signed name included.
Seven scientifically proven benefits from participating in a gratitude activity:
- Improves self esteem
- Increases mental strength
- Improves physical health
- Improves psychological health
- Grateful people sleep better
- Enhances empathy & reduces aggression
- Opens the door to more relationships
The Gratitude Wall has proven to be quite popular with staff. A big thank you to all who have forwarded their thoughts and photographs so far.
Please have a flick through the photos below of the Gratitude pieces received from various Orana locations.
Even in these uncertain times, we need to remind ourselves each day of all the things that you do already have that are grateful for.
