What we’re about

This community is for anyone who enjoys connecting with their community, each other, and nature while mindfully reconnecting with their deeper self.
Participants are asked to share their expressions of gratitude with one another and reflect on the positive aspects of their lives. The purpose of the project is to explore the benefits of communal gratitude, as well as to encourage individuals to cultivate a regular gratitude practice.
Our events focus on improving mental well-being while fostering a space of simplicity, belongingness, and love. Sounds fluffy? Well, it is not. Research has shown that expressing gratitude has numerous benefits for mental and physical well-being. Gratitude is associated with greater happiness, improved relationships, and better physical health. When practiced in a group setting, the benefits of gratitude can be amplified. Communal gratitude fosters a sense of connectedness and belonging, enhancing social bonds and relationships. It can also increase feelings of empathy and reduce negative emotions such as envy and resentment.
Everyone MUST register in the meetup group for liability and safety purposes to participate.
Individuals who participated in gratitude group walks, hikes, and other social events expressed greater levels of well-being, reduced symptoms of depression, experienced more positive emotions and greater social support, and a stronger sense of connection with self. Gratitude Choice Project allows individuals to cultivate gratitude in a communal setting, which can benefit mental and physical well-being. By focusing on the positive aspects of life and expressing gratitude towards one another, participants can enhance their relationships and foster a greater sense of connectedness and belonging.
We give back to our community by doing food drives, clothing drives, and fundraiser walks.

Founder of Gratitude Choice Project
My name is Nicola Chambers-Holder. Gratitude Choice Project is my way of paying rent for this amazing gift of life. After experiencing years of illness where I couldn't move, walking in nature, journaling, and supporting others were a big part of my healing journey.
I am inviting my fellow humans to join me. Let's heal together while putting love and UNITY back into COMMUNITY.
I have a Master's and Ph.D. in Psychology specializing in human and organizational behavior, so I am called an Organizational Psychologist. I am a counselor, personal development and certified life coach, and the CEO of PPW LLC, a holistic wellness practice.
If you are a fellow spiritual being looking to connect with old and new friends as you walk mindfully in nature…. welcome…

Please share pictures of our adventures, quotes, techniques, and other tools on the meetup and our Facebook group to encourage each other to be obsessively grateful! It is empowering and liberating! We also do gratitude walks in different locations throughout Connecticut.
When we meet, we share three things we are grateful for, think of one goal we want to achieve, and walk our way into our breakthroughs!! Looking forward to sharing this gratitude practice and exploring the outdoors with you. With gratitude and love, 🙏🏾🧡
