I have been offering Gratitude Workshops through my private practice for a couple of years, and will be holding the next one early January, 2017. Research demonstrates that people who practice gratitude regularly have psychological, physical, and social benefits. http://greatergood.berkeley.edu/…/item/why_gratitude_is_good
I decided to combine my passion for helping people improve mental health and my joy in making jewelry into these Gratitude Bracelets, made with Swarovski pearls. Each bracelet comes with an instructional card with the words that are inside the frame in the photo. These make excellent gifts, or for yourself, and are timely with Thanksgiving and the Holiday Season approaching. You may contact me directly to purchase, or purchase through my website http://drpeggydelong.com/product/gratitude-bracelets/.
“Wear this Gratitude Bracelet, and every time you look at the sparkly bead, spend a moment in gratitude. Think of one or two people, events, experiences, or things for which you are grateful. Take this a step further and write your thoughts in a Gratitude Journal. The more grateful you are, the more goodness and blessings you attract into your life. With regular practice, you will soon begin to feel elevations in your energy and mood.”
Announcing “Peggy’s Midnight Creations” – Inspirational Jewelry for life’s celebrations, relationships, occasions, and challenges.
As a psychologist, I am often encouraging my clients to discover their passions and carve out time for them. In 2008, I took a class in jewelry making. As I experienced the therapeutic impact of beading, it very quickly became a passion. I am now drawing upon my 20+ years in the mental health field and incorporating wisdom gained into bracelets for a variety of life’s celebrations, occasions, relationships, and challenges. The inspirations/instructions for the bracelets draw upon humanistic psychology and research from cognitive behavioral psychology. On my Inspirational Jewelry page, you will find:
