A gratitude journalling practice doesn't necessarily change your life circumstances, but it can help change your perspective on things.
Even when we're experiencing a difficult period in life, making an effort to record some something uplifting encourages a positive vibe and awareness of all the goodness that surrounds us.
Try answering the following questions to show yourself just how much you have to be thankful for right now:
1) What's one good thing that happened to you today?
2) What personality traits of yours are you thankful for?
3) Did someone do something nice for you today?
4) What nice thing did you do for someone today?
5) Who are you most grateful for to have in your life and why?
6) Name 3 things that always put a smile on your face.
7) Make a list of ways you're fortunate (as many as you can!).
8) What can you start doing today to express your gratitude for others in your life?
Some of you might find it beneficial to write this down each day. Set aside a few moments as part of your morning or evening routine to consider what you are grateful for. You might be surprised at the benefits.
