Why You Should Keep a Gratitude Journal

Back in July I started a new habit, and it is one that I have been able to keep up with even through the business of school. I started my bullet journal, but within it I started a gratitude list. I decided to write down 3 things every day that I am thankful for, and it has really been beneficial.


One of my favorite things about keeping a gratitude journal is that I can always find at least 3 good things in every day. Even at the end of a “bad day” I can still reflect and be grateful for a few things, which makes me feel more positive about going into the next day. It is so so easy to get caught up in everything that is going wrong, but it is also important to take time to appreciate the good things that happen, no matter how small they are. 

It also helps me focus on what really matters. When someone asks me how my day is, I can genuinely  say good because I can always find a few good things. It is also super fun to look back and see the things I was thankful for a few months ago.
