How to Gratitude journal

If you are feeling like things could be better in your life, I have something for you to try that will take less than 5 minutes! I am going to teach you how to gratitude journal!!

Having a gratitude practice helps us:

  • have a more positive outlook
  • improve our relationships
  • reduce stress
  • help us reach our goals
  • make better choices
  • improve our mood

If any of these sound like something that would improve your life, try taking just 5 minutes daily to have a gratitude journal!

How to start- it’s easy!

  1. Grab a journal and a pen
  2. Write down 1-3 specific things that you are grateful for in the last 24 hours

How does having a gratitude journal help our wellness?

  • A daily routine in which we focus on the things in our life that we are grateful for, helps us focus on the positive aspects of our life in an authentic way
  • When our awareness is on things that we are grateful for, we naturally start noticing more things that we are grateful for
  • When you are feeling down, you can look back through your gratitude journal as a reminder of good things in your life

It may sound so simple that you are asking yourself- how can this work? But I am telling you from personal experience and from my client’s experiences, it absolutely does work- and the association with having a gratitude practice and an improved wellbeing is backed by research studies!! How cool is that 🙂

I would love to hear your thoughts on this & if you are going to try it out or if you are already doing this!!
