2. Don't set a minimum number of positives per day
While many experts recommend trying to find at least three (or perhaps even five) positive things to write about each day, it can be more beneficial to simply focus on each individual positive as-is. If that means you encounter less than five positive things to write about each day, that’s perfectly fine. Life is about balance, and for each day that you can only find one or two positive things, there will be other days where you’ll fill page after page. Embrace this.
3. Write when you feel like it
When keeping a gratitude journal, some people find it beneficial to integrate their writing into part of their daily routine (at bedtime, for example). However, it can be easier to capture your feelings of positivity in the here-and-now of the moment. If you’ve experienced something positive, it makes sense to write in your gratitude journal straight away.
