Ah December, the most wonderful time of the year. I cannot help but talk about how amazing this month is to me. Fairy lights that fill the streets with dreamy atmosphere and make the darkness a lot more bearable. The joy on kids faces when they see the Christmas decorations. My joy when I get to open my advent calendar each morning and can eat a piece of chocolate in the morning all through December. It truly is a month of joy. To give something back to you during this wonderful time, I have created some Instagram stories template freebies for you to download as part of my #24daysofgratitude project, which I am hosting on Instagram this year.
#24daysofgratitude – A very special advent calendar
This year, for December, I wanted to do something different on the blog. So I came up with the 24 Days of Gratitude “challenge”. I don’t actively call it a challenge but rather a project as it is not about competing with each other but celebrating together.
During this merry month, I want to ask you to share your daily gratitudes and happy moments on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and the likes by using the #24daysofgratitude. This way we can create a positive movement and focus on the things that really count in December, namely joy, happiness and being in the moment.
For many of us, December is hectic and stressful. The days leading up to Christmas turn into a blur of shopping for presents, writing exams, and running errands. Inbetween the crazy we meet friends and bake cookies. But what if we don’t stress ourselves too much this year but rather try to enjoy the month as much as we can?
My Gift: Goodies and Freebies for you
Christmas isn’t only a time to celebrate the joy of Christmas and be festive but also the perfect opportunity to give something back to you. So during the next twenty-four days, I will share a picture a day on Instagram with the caption referring to some kind of learning, gratitude or happy moment from the day or year thus far.
Furthermore, I want to celebrate December by supplying you with goodies, freebies, and giveaways – on my social media channels, as well as here on the blog.
Instagram Stories Template Freebies
For day one of my 24 Days of Gratitude project, I have decided to share five Instagram Stories Template Freebies about happiness and gratitude with you. You can download them by saving them from the website or taking a screenshot with your phone. I will also collect them in my Instagram Stories Highlights and look forward to seeing your daily gratitude-lists, feedback, and postings with the hashtag and participating in the project.
It truly is a project very dear to my heart, as my gratitude journal has tremendously changed my perspective on life and mental health this year. This is why I want to share this unique way of reflecting with you and give you an opportunity to also share it on Instagram. I do find that reading through the little things, which make someone else happy, inspires you to take a step back and reflect as well, so I thought this might be something nice to focus on during the festive season.
