Secrets of Success

Keep A Gratitude Journal



Keep a daily or weekly gratitude journal to keep track of the goodness in your life. Start today ~ right now ~ and jot down something you appreciate and are grateful for! Do this at least once a week and put the date next to your entry.

More Information:

Don't over think this! Grab a piece of paper or your computer and start the list now. I've been doing this for two years and when I need a lift, I read the entries and draw on the knowledge that my life is filled with so much to appreciate from my favorite cup of coffee to my beautiful grandsons.

  • Yup, love this. Esp. When I'm feeling down about things, if I write down just 3-5 things I'm grateful for 3 days straight, I will find that my moods have shifted - by ZENSTEPH
    This really does work - writing it down, even (maybe especially) when I'm feeling depressed or tired. - by CREATURE6
  • Nice idea
