A simple mindfulness practice: daily gratitude journal
Some studies suggest that writing a gratitude journal at least 3 times a week might have a greater impact on your happiness than doing it every day. Time required? 15 minutes only…
So, start by writing down up to 5 things you feel grateful for, not just doing it in your head. Here you find 9 important tips:
- Be as specific as possible
- Go for depth over breadth (details about a particular thing instead of a superficial multiple list)
- Try subtraction, not just addition (consider what your life could be without certain people or things…)
- Get personal
- See good things as gifts, rather than taking them for granted
- Savor surprises
- Revise if you repeat
- Write regularly
- Don’t overdo it
The goal of this practice is to remember a good life experience, then enjoy the good emotions that come with it.
Cultivate happiness by taking note of the good around you!!!
