Gratitude Journal Beth D Baus MS, MTS Marriage and Family Therapist
People sometimes fail to see all the good that surrounds them. Using a gratitude journal can help us take time to notice and record those positive events. As we practice gratefulness, our health and feelings of happiness can also improve. It only takes a few minutes a day, but it can give you a lasting mood boost that can take you from feeling "okay" to feeling "great" on a more regular basis.
One way to make the most out of this exercise is to make journaling something you do every day. Keep it somewhere you will see it, or you might even consider setting an alarm to remind you to sit down and write out some of your daily thoughts.
Most importantly, have fun with your gratitude journal, and remember to make it uniquely yours!
