Gratitude Journaling

You can keep track of the positive things in life with a gratitude journal. There is always something to feel grateful for, no matter how difficult and unpleasant life can be at times. Write a list of the things you are grateful for in your life to lift your spirits.

It's easy to get started: simply list down what you're grateful for on a daily basis or whenever you're feeling bad.

It is totally up to you when you want to write. You could start every night or just when it feels natural for you.

Benefits to journaling your thankfulness:

  • Gratitude journaling can help you feel less stressed. It can make you feel more relaxed, particularly at night;

  • Journaling can help you gain a fresh perspective on what matters to you and what you value most in life. You might obtain clarity on what you want more of in your life and what you can do without by writing down what you are grateful for.

  • Gratitude writing can assist you in identifying and focusing on what is most important to you. Keeping a thankfulness notebook might help you gain a better understanding of yourself and become more self-aware.

  • Because your thankfulness diary is exclusively for your eyes, you can write whatever you want without fear of being judged by others;

  • You can look over your appreciation notes to modify your attitude and remember all the beautiful things in your life on days when you're feeling down.

  • It has the potential to make you more conscious of your life.
