What is a Gratitude Journal?
A gratitude journal is a tool that you can use to appreciate the happy things in life. It gives you time to settle down at a certain spot during a specific time of day that you set aside for yourself.
1. A Positive Outlook Throughout Life
In life we tend to dwell more on the negatives: what we didn’t achieve, who we weren’t able to measure up to, what we failed at, etc. Having a routine of writing down and acknowledging the positives in our life helps us have a more optimistic view of our ourselves as well as the world around us.
2. Better Sleep
This Study showed that people who wrote down what they were grateful for slept better at night. This is because they had more positive than negative thoughts while they slept. Those positive thoughts lead to better and longer sleep.
3. Relieves Stress
Grateful people have an overall improved life satisfaction. Focusing on pleasant ideas helps take your mind off of negative events. This allows you to less focus on stressful thoughts and focus yourself on success.
