Did you know that expressing gratitude can make you at least 25% happier?
One of my favorite ways of expressing gratitude is by keeping a gratitude journal. This simple writing technique can be done in just a few minutes, and the effects will be long-lasting. In my Ultimate Success Masterclass program, my students and I practice this ritual daily. Today, I will be sharing a few of their personal experiences from when I’ve asked them about gratitude journaling:
What benefits or changes have you experienced since filling up your Gratitude Journal?
“I definitely noticed more of the things I’m happy about in life and the things that are going well in my life. Sometimes in a busy day, you forget to do that. So the gratitude journal really gives me an opportunity to reflect on the really positive things that have been happening.”
“Well, the changes are that you’re more positive, you’re appreciating the little things that are happening, so of course that makes you happier overall. What I’ve found is the biggest change, is that once you had experienced several little experiences and you’ve got it going, you want to share it. So you go a step above and share it with others. And trying to think on a daily basis, ‘What little thing can you do to give someone else that experience, to give them that special moment. And so even just giving compliments.’”
“The gratitude journal had a really positive effect on my life and on my actions and my happiness. Because if I’m focusing on the positives in such a way, it takes away that negativity and that sadness. To me, it encourages a way forward in small steps. So it gives you the mental strength to overcome problems.”
“The biggest change is that I’m taking that space each night just for me. So you sit down at the end of the day and you think, ‘What’s going really well in my life today? What have I enjoyed?’ And taking that space every night, that in itself is a real pleasure, but you end up appreciating so much in your life. It’s the secret spice that helps you fall in love with your life. And it’s made SUCH a difference.”
“I feel as though I have more blessings. It might just be that I’m noticing them more, but I really do feel and notice these blessings, so it gives me more security and more happiness and more faith. I feel like I’ve had more courage to investigate a business idea I have, and so I’ve taken some action steps, and before this, I would not have done that.”
