I’M SO EXCITED to share a FREE GRATITUDE JOURNAL!!!! I’ve teamed up with Taylor Best (yes, two Taylors does equal 2x the awesome) of Taylor Best Creative. She is an incredibly talented graphic designer and photographer and agreed to help me bring this idea to life.
This is a single-sheet that you can print out to turn into your own book or print off one at a time on days that you really need it.
Why should i care about “Gratitude”?
There’s a continually growing body of research supporting the theory that gratitude is one of the most powerful practices in cultivating emotional resilience, stability and overall happiness. Based on this scientific evidence, gratitude can make you:
Happier than money or things
Better at your job
Get better quality sleep
Feels like five solid reasons to start practicing gratitude, amiright? And if that’s not enough, here’s a couple more articles.
How do I start a “gratitude practice”?
So gratitude is great and awesome and all that but what does it mean to “practice gratitude”? GLAD YOU ASKED! It’s so easy to think about something like soccer practice. If someone told you that you needed to get better at soccer, you’d go to practice. You’d show up at a set time every day, do the drills given to you, work hard, go home. Do it all over again, day after day.
Practice is practice, no matter what you’re talking about. In order to get better at gratitude, you have to practice it.
Start by having a journal and setting a time and place to use it. Whether it’s at the end of the day, middle or beginning, set your time to practice. If you use the download, you’ll have a couple different areas of life to think about: present day, general life and specific people and events. Some days might be easier for certain areas and vice versa—but that’s the point of practice! Being grateful for every part of you day and your life will feel more natural over time and, as you now know, reverberate positivity and health into all parts of your life.
I hope you enjoy starting or continuing your current gratitude practice with the help of this handy guide!
