It’s a great habit to take moments during the day to reflect and write. Your gratitude journal is as it sounds. It could be a journal or note pad with the intention to write down what you’re grateful for. You can write things down daily, weekly or monthly. Seeing the words down on paper can have a powerful and positive effect on your state of mind. When you’re aware of all you have to be thankful for, it’s hard to have unhappiness co-exist in that same mental state.

Say Thanks in The Moment

We all have people in our life to be grateful for. They’re the people you can call or text at 1am to discuss a problem. They’re the people who bring joy and laughter into your life. They’re the people who give you advice on how to move forward. When people display acts of kindness, love, support and offer insight, be vocal about it in the moment. We shouldn’t have to wait till the holiday season to express gratitude. We should do it in that moment because there’s no telling the impact that it will have on that person.
