I love taking time to write down or talk about things I am grateful for, so I created a little printable gratitude journal. This can be used as adults or with your kids.
Do you know that science has shown that being grateful is beneficial to our bodies and minds in many ways? Some of the benefits of showing gratitude include: increased happiness, reduced materialism, improved self-esteem, improved physical health, increased mental strength, and better relationships with others. Don’t these all sound like wonderful things? I, personally would like to improve on all of those qualities.
I purchased a little one line a day journal a few years back and use it as a gratitude journal. I tuck it in my night stand and try to remember to do it at bed time. While I am not always consistent, I love it just the same.
I love this quote about gratitude. It reminds me that it really is not about material things, but cultivating an attitude of gratitude.
What’s In My Printable Gratitude Journal
This little gratitude journal has 7 pages of prompts, as well as pages to keep a daily journal. The prompts include ways to help you understand gratitude more fully in your life. They talk about the benefits of being grateful and how you can tap into those benefits.
For example, here is the page about how gratitude makes us happier.
Benefits of Gratitude
This journal covers several benefits of gratitude. Happiness, social benefits, physical benefits, less selfish, and achieving more in life.
It also has a space to write a happy list. What’s a happy list? This is something I did a long time ago that I have loved to much. I started a list of things that made me happy, brought me the most joy. They can be things like family, sunsets, chocolate, and puppy snuggles. It’s a great thing to try and see what small or big things bring you most joy. Keep adding to it as you recognize more things.
