DIY Gratitude Journal

If there is one habit that I could recommend for you to implement into your daily routine this year, it’s practicing gratitude at the start and end of each day. I’ve talked about this before in posts and videos, but I don’t think I’ve ever fully explained; it was always something I mentioned in passing.

I read quite a lot of books on spirituality, and one common theme is always gratitude. No matter what the overall theme of the book is, this is something that is always recommended, so I started trying it out at the beginning of 2018. One year later, I can’t stress enough how important I now think this practice is.

When I wake up in the morning, I like to write down three things that I am grateful for that day (all before I even get out of bed!). This can be something as simple as being grateful for my warm and comfy bed, or something more major like having a loving and supportive family. Also, similarly, at the end of each day, I write down three good things that happened that day. Even if you had a bad day, you can always find three good things that happened. “Every day may not be a good day, but there is good in every day.” Again, it can be something as small as your barista at Starbucks made your order perfectly.

You’ve probably heard that the energy you put out is the energy the universe sends back your way. Here’s a super simple way to think of it: If you have a very negative outlook on the world and on your life, you will continue to receive these negative things. On the other hand, if you focus on the positives and stay thankful for the good things in your life, you will continue to get more and more positive things back your way. (It’s a pretty simple concept really; practicing it is where it begins to get tricky).

Starting and ending your day with gratitude will not only put you in a good mood instantly, but will also help attract more of what you want into your life. You wake up feeling grateful and you go to bed feeling grateful, and in return you receive more things to be grateful for.

While I currently have a journal that’s designed specifically for this, awhile back I was thinking how easy it would be to create your own. So, today I wanted to share how you can make your own DIY gratitude journal. This is one of my top tips for a healthy habits to implement in 2019. I hope you enjoy! x
