One of the benefits of keeping a gratitude journal is that, over time, you’re going to build a list of people and events for which you are grateful. You’ll be able to share your gratitude on a regular basis because your list is handy.
The best time to do this is when you are having a really bad day. That’s right, a really, really bad day. Why do I say that? Because, doing this simple exercise of sharing will drag you – kicking and screaming if necessary – out of your bad day. You cannot be grateful and be stressed out or in a lousy mood at the same time. Thankfully, gratefulness is one of the superpowers in the universe and it will stop stress and squash a lousy mood in a heartbeat.
Just the exercise of finding that special person and writing down why you’re grateful for what they’ve done for you will stop the bad vibes. When you actually sit down and share with them, the reaction you’re going to get will turn a bad day into a fantastic day in just a matter of minutes.
So, have a grateful day.
