Welcome to Gratitude Journal!

I was inspired to create Gratitude Journal when I was going through some personal issues. It happened to be right around Thanksgiving and as a tradition, I thought of things to be thankful for. This immediately made me feel better and happiner, being reminded that the problems I face are just minor and temporary and there are so much more to be happy about. I wanted to make this a regular thing and actually record my thoughts, not necessarily a lengthy diary or a blog but simple and short entries/list of things. I did some research and found that numerous studies have been done and articles written (such as these posts by: Harvard, The Huffington Post, Psychology Today) on the positive effect of giving thanks on one's level of happiness. In addition, not only reflecting on a regular basis but actively logging specific things enhances this effect.


How it works is pretty simple:

Reflect

Think about all the things you're grateful for

Log

Make entries in
your journal

Be Happier

Notice your level of happiness increase
within days!
