the gratitude journal

Posted on July 05, 2017 by Debbie Kuhn | 0 Comments

Yes...I am one of those people that started doing a Gratitude Journal years ago and here to find out, the exact date was November 12, 2011...much to my surprise.  Can't recall why I started, but I did, and it has become a daily ritual before I go to bed for nearly six years.  It causes me to reflect on my day and get in touch with all the blessings that surround me.  There are some tough times through those years, yet, the exercise of putting pen to paper does something rather positive.

I recently took a class at the @ClevelandClinic where they sited a study that was done on those that do Gratitude Journals and they found more positive results were experienced if you only list three things. I have not graduated to that as of yet, but generally have a list of at least five, if not more.

I used inexpensive spiral notebooks from @Target through the years.

This year, a friend gave me a "proper" journal (the one on top) and I have to say, it has completely elevated the experience.  I have another "proper" journal waiting in the wings (the blue one).  Now, I need to find the "proper" pen to elevate the experience even more.

If you do not do it already, I highly recommend taking a little time out of your day to put pen to paper and get in touch with all the goodness in your life.  It's so worth it!
