my thoughts

As the book says I”m sure you are all aware of a gratitude journal, and if not then get googling!  Designed to help you to reflect on a daily basis on the things in your life that you’re grateful for, a daily gratitude practice is a must.

I’ve been practicing daily gratitude for a while as it really does make you feel better.  With so many of us struggling with mental health these days, taking some time out on a daily basis to just sit quietly and reflect is so important.  And even on the worst days, it helps to find at least one thing that you’re grateful for.  This journal helps with daily prompts to encourage you to think and to make writing easier.

Not only that, there are also weekly prompts to encourage you to look at the week as a whole, 4 weekly and 3 monthly prompts, as well as reflection at the end of the year.  Obviously I’m nowhere near the year, but the daily prompts have definitely helped me to get my thoughts in order and to sit and actually write down my gratitudes (instead of keeping them in my head).

The other thing I love are the motivational quotes at the end of each week!  I was lucky enough to be given a PDF copy of this, however, I’m a book freak (as you’ve probably guessed) and would prefer to have a copy of this journal (rather than my printed copies) so will definitely be buying myself a hardcopy of this when I can afford to (student problems!)

If you haven’t yet started a daily gratitude practice, or have but find it a struggle deciding what to write, then check this out.  Honestly, if you haven’t thought about doing this, at least give it a try.  I promise it will help you feel a bit better each day.  This comes highly recommended by me and I can’t wait to go and buy my copy!
