For the past couple of years I’ve kept a gratitude journal.
I’ve found it to be a fabulous place to document all the ‘little things’ that make each day positive.
The journal helped me to focus on what really matters and even when life gets crazy or throws you a curve ball, finding even just one small thing to be grateful for can turn your day around.
Previously, I’ve used both a diary and an art journal. These were kept specifically for gratitude entries and both options worked well for me.
I’m sure you’ve probably seen others write about gratitude journals or even gratitude jars…. and I bet you’ve dismissed it as ‘just one more thing to add to your already busy day’.
But here’s the thing…. taking just one minute a day to write down a couple of bullet points about what’s good in your life is such a positive way to remember all those little moments that are quickly forgotten about in your busy day.
Once you start writing down things that you are grateful for… you start paying attention and looking for more things to be thankful for.
And being thankful makes you happy!
This year I decided to add an extra weekly page to my planner.
It’s ‘My week of Gratitude’ and has space for a few bullet points for each day of the week. It matches the rest of my planner and can be slotted in with my Weekly Action Plan.
