Do you use a gratitude journal? The benefits have widely been proven of giving thanks.
The basic practice is straightforward. To start simply record five things you have experienced in the past week for which they’re grateful. After 2 weeks increase the frequency to 2-3 times a week. The entries should be brief, a single sentence and can from the mundane to the sublime.
To reaping the greatest rewards from gratitude journaling don’t just go through the motions. Make a conscious decision to be happier and more grateful. Go for depth over breadth and avoid the superficial. Focusing on people to whom you are grateful has more of an impact than focusing on things. Reflect on what your life would be like without certain blessings, rather than just tallying up all those good things.
Take it up a notch by making a conscious effort to associate each entry with the word "gift". Adding the word to your entries.........
You don’t need to buy a fancy personal journal to record or worry about spelling or grammar. The important thing is to establish the habit of paying attention to "gratitude" events.
Change your world by starting with your inner world - beliefs, values.......For anyone who wants to improve their life I set you a challenge. Each night before going to sleep write down 5 things your grateful for. Do this for 2-4 weeks, then check-in with your soul. Feel the change - shift that occurs when focusing on what you have rather than what's lacking. Your world instantly becomes brighter
