Keeping a Gratitude Journal

When you continuously express things you are grateful for, it trains your brain to begin focusing on things you like about your life instead of the things you don’t.

Gratitude journals help to build faith and good attitude. In order to receive the benefits from a gratitude journal you need to keep one everyday for at least two weeks. You should also write down at least 5 items each day

It’s also important to do it even when you feel bad. In fact, that’s when it’s most beneficial. You will begin to see that even on your bad days, you always have something to be grateful for.

You’ll also notice that as you continue to keep a journal, you’ll start finding more and more to write about. http://www.attackdepression.com/info/gratitude-journal.html

“ Nothing taken for granted; everything received with gratitude; everything
passed on with grace.” -G. K. Chesterton

More energy and Optimism

Research suggests that grateful people have more energy and optimism, are less bothered by life’s hassles, are more resilient in the face of stress, have better health, and suffer less depression than the rest of us. People who practice gratitude-and yes, it is something one can learn and improve-are also more compassionate, more likely to help others, less materialistic, and more satisfied with life.
