Is Your Gratitude Journal Working?
Ever Used a Gratitude Journal?
Did it work?
If not, could it be that you were going through the motions and not digging deep enough?
Gratitude journaling is more effective if you first make the conscious decision to go all in. That means not just writing an affirmation or listing one pleasant thing that happened each week. Writing once in a while and calling it a day isn't going to bring about any significant changes.
To fully commit means writing consistently and elaborating in detail about a particular thing. A gratitude journal is intended to be personal. It means opening up and focusing on people you are grateful for and situations that touched you, your family, or your life. Share your story with the journal and be honest about what you are feeling. Journalling isn't the time to skimp on details or emotions.
Write about the items that you are grateful for, of course, but when we go deeper and move past the superficial list, we begin to see significant benefits. Be brave and start again if you've stopped.
