Journaling Prompt #14 – Express Your Gratitude

August 13th, 2008 by Avital

Expressing gratitude has a ton of positive effects on you.

  1. It helps you calm down.
  2. It makes you feel happier and more optimistic.
  3. It gives you a clearer view of the big picture in your life, a reminder of all the good things you’ve got but haven’t paid much attention to.
  4. Listing all the things you are grateful for can also give you an energy boost and put you in a good mood – no matter how you were feeling before.
  5. Another benefit of listing your gratitude and thinking positively is manifested by The law of attraction. According the the scholars of the “law of attraction” you attract what you think about into your life. Thus thinking positively brings positive things into your life.

There is always something to be thankful for. Always. Mostly the list of things to be thankful for is bigger than we can actually write or recollect in one sitting.

This week’s journaling prompt is to sit down, relax and start expressing your gratitude.

There are many ways to do so but in my opinion it is important to write it down, here are some ideas on how to write about your gratitude:

  1. Write down a list of things you are grateful for.
  2. Write about a person you appreciate in your life.
  3. Write a letter of gratitude to someone, expressing why and how you are grateful for him or her.
  4. Set a goal to express gratitude on a regular basis – daily/weekly/monthly… etc.
  5. Start a gratitude journal.
