Gratitude Journal

Home » Gratitude Journal

Treatment vs Homework

Often it feels like adding a practice to your life is a big effort, even a burden. Who needs one more thing on the To-Do list? I feel that writing in a gratitude journal can be a self-care practice that’s a treat instead of a chore.

Well Being

It’s a great tool to have in your toolbelt to fight depression, anxiety, confusion, and feeling overwhelmed. In under 3 minutes, you can reset your focus and re-calibrate to find your balance again.

Benefits

This simple act lowers stress and brings greater calm. It allows you to take time for yourself in the day, and give your well being priority. For me, I gain new perspective on what’s important in my life and it helps me to become more self aware. I’ve seen this practice give people a greater resilience to the challenges in life, lowered aggression and more empathy, improved relationships, and creating connection which is a basic human need. We feel more alert and alive, and less lonely.

Getting Started

I love treating myself to a pretty journal and keeping it by my bed. Taking some time to sit in my favorite spot and write down a short list of 3-5 things or events that I feel grateful for can feel like special me-time in a busy day. For me, giving myself permission to NOT do this practice everyday means that I don’t feel pressured to do it or guilt if I miss a day.

You can pick one day a week to get started, or set a time when you know it would help you reset. When you have time to dig in and give yourself some extra minutes to elaborate on why you feel grateful, this has even more benefits. It allows you to explore the emotional roots and see what’s important to you and why. When you do this, it empowers you to identify these essential elements in other areas, to attract them and celebrate them.

I’d love to hear how it made you feel!
