What Are You Grateful For? The Power of Gratitude Journaling

The Power of Being Grateful!

Have you given thanks today? In today’s society, it seems that a percentage of us look at what we don’t have instead of looking at what we do have.

Spend a few moments every day to give thanks for the things that we take for granted.

A good friend of mine saw my struggles. She suggested that I keep a journal on my nightstand, and I have ever since. So I began my morning with a “grateful journal” simply by writing down my top three things that I was grateful for.

Simple things to be grateful for would be: I am grateful to wake up today, I am grateful for my legs to walk, I am grateful for my bulletproof coffee, I am grateful to have clothes to put on my body, and I am grateful for my sight, which enables me to see the beautiful world around me.

The Gratitude Journal in Action

These moments of gratitude can be so simple, so do not overthink it. It is amazing how this little trick of documenting your gratefulness will change your mindset.

My routine is that every morning and right before bed, I give thanks for three things. (Three, that is it!)

Giving thanks in the morning sets your day up for gratefulness and positivity. Giving thanks before bed seals it all in and lets the gratitude sink into your subconscious.

As I start my day, I simply turn on my my diffuser in the morning with a blend of peppermint and wild orange.



This is a blend that I highly recommend for starting your day, as it is uplifting, and it will give you that feeling like you can take on your day, full-force. It is a very uplifting blend.


Gratefulness as Daily Fuel

Create a section in your “gratitude journal” for the gifts, the surprises in your life. Our lives get so busy, and I found that I would forget the surprises and the compliments from day to day.

If I get an unexpected gift or a compliment, I make sure that I write it down, as it is the gratefulness that fuels me. I love at the end of the week to look back and realize I have an incredible list of all the things that I am grateful for.

It reveals how blessed we truly are.

If you want to take it one step further, try meditating even for two minutes in the morning and before bed to allow those things you are grateful for to sink in.

I encourage you to start your gratitude list!
