Self-Care Challenge (Day 211): Gratitude Journaling

gratitude journalIn many ways, expressing gratitude is an art, yet, for many people, it often gets pushed to the bottom of the “to do” list.

We take for granted that we can see, smell, hear, taste and use our arms and legs to accomplish our goals.

We say “thank you” in a reflexive way, without necessarily feeling a sense of gratitude within our hearts.

We forget that those special people in our lives won’t be here with us forever.

Research has shown that taking a few moments to reflect on our blessings just a couple of times each week really can boost our happiness. Whether you prefer journaling, spending time in quiet reflection, or using some other form of media to express yourself, counting your blessings is an uplifting form of self-care.

Don’t feel creative? There are plenty of gratitude journals (Amazon Associate Link) available to help you get started.

How do you express gratitude?
