The word 'appreciation' came up during two of my meetings yesterday. One was during our daily morning team virtual huddle and the other was during a meeting with our June guest for The RDH View, Dr. Kristin Yont, DDS (SMART Program Certified).
Appreciation comes in many forms and is something that you can easily schedule in your day as a reminder to take the time and appreciate those around you and the environment we live in. You can decide to show appreciation or love for others throughout your day. You can even make a conscious effort and decide to show appreciation to 3 people today (as an example). You can journal in the morning or evening and list a few things that you appreciate daily. Whether it was a good night sleep in your comfy bed or the access we have to food or restaurants. It can be for the feeling of the sun on your face during your nature walk or the sound of the snow crunching under your feet.
Dr. Yont mentioned that in her practice, during their morning huddle, they all take the time to show their appreciation. What a great way to start their day!
During our team morning huddle, we all watch a daily leadership video and have a discussion following the video. The last few sessions have been on appreciation and how we all need to feel appreciated. Some are better at showing their appreciation than others. I like to show appreciation to our team when I see all the hard work that they do to make rdhu run so smoothly.
Showing appreciation to others is a great way to create a culture of kindness and is contagious! When you show appreciation, it sets the stage for positivity and can really boost moral within an organization or practice.
