I find this simple daily routine my most fulfilling way to boost my happiness; it starts my day in a positive mindset and gets the days momentum on a positive start.
Often we have good intentions to Journal but time is a factor that we feel inhibits this habit from developing, why not keep it a simple five minute daily routine?
By creating a daily Five Minute Gratitude Journal a part of your morning your day is on its way to a happier, brighter day!
Choose three to five things for which you feel grateful, how you write is not important but rather acknowledging what you are grateful for.
Don’t overthink what to write it can be simply one word or a small thing such as I enjoyed my yogurt and fruit this morning, or I just found out I am going to be a grandmother!
The idea is to remember a event that brought you joy, an experience that was happy, spending time with someone that was uplifting, or being able to get that new thing you have been wanting, just remember the feeling you had and the good emotions that you felt.
Be as specific as possible, this aids in fostering gratitude for example, when Susan brought me that coffee at my desk when I was overwhelmed I appreciated her act of kindness. Other than I am grateful I work with Susan.
So what are you waiting for give it a try and remember put this time aside intentionally, keep living in gratitude, keep present, savor and enjoy the little things, relax and have a happy day!
