Take time to focus on what you’re grateful for.
Gratitude journaling is a wonderful way to practice self-love and remind yourself of all the things you should be grateful for. This simple yet powerful practice has also been shown to reduce stress, boost one’s health, and cultivate a habit of being grateful.
If you want to begin your own gratitude journaling journey, you can start small. Start your day by making a list of things you are thankful for. Yes, finding something to be grateful for might be difficult at times, but it’s always worth a shot. Even on our worst days, there is always something to be thankful for—we simply have to seek harder.
Pick a journal
Next, choose how you’d like to journal. This part is easy and enjoyable! Journaling may be done in a variety of ways, from your fave notebook to an app on your phone, or even a DIY diary if you’re feeling really creative.
Alternatively, you can also use a journal that already has writing prompts inside to help guide your thoughts.
