Why should we use a gratitude journal?

We are often encouraged to believe that happiness is a thing we can obtain, a destination we can reach. This is a perspective that leads us to feel unfulfilled, forever thinking that an external thing will bring true happiness.

In reality, to increase happiness you need to live happily. Happiness is a state of mind. Gratitude journaling and affirmations work to increase happiness through focusing your mind on the positives in your life. Why exactly do they work?

All too often we can become fixated with our tasks, and we forget to appreciate what we already have. Expressing gratitude daily helps you to develop a positive outlook as part of your everyday life. Studies have shown that writing about gratitude helps to give people a real positivity boost.

Gratitude journaling in a daily gratitude journal is a great way to start your day. To boost productivity as you work towards important goals, write down just three things you feel grateful for before getting started.

Your gratitude journaling needs to be specific. What makes your life happy?

Maybe it’s a family member who gives the best hugs. Maybe it’s your good health or the safety of where you live. Maybe it’s a talent you enjoy that has kept you going through difficult times. Whatever you are grateful for, expressing your gratitude can put negatives into focus and help you break outside of your own thoughts.

Benefits of using a gratitude journal

  • Increase in psychological wellbeing
  • Increases our positive emotions
  • Improves self-esteem
  • Creates a focus on positive thoughts, rather than negative
  • Enhances your optimism
  • Helps us focus on what we have rather than what we don't have
  • Can help reduce depression
  • Improves quality of sleep
  • Can improve relationships
  • Enhances empathy and reduces aggression

When is the best time to use a gratitude journal?

There's no one set time to use a gratitude journal.

Gratitude journaling in the morning can be a motivator for the rest of the day. It sets you up to see the world in a more positive light. In the evening, a gratitude journal can help you to look back over your day and register your gratitude for the positive moments.

Write in your gratitude journal whenever you feel the need. Recording a positive experience can be a real boost when you’re at a low ebb during the day.

Try to write in your gratitude journal at a consistent time each day, so it fits into your daily routine and builds a strong habit.

Practising affirmations with a gratitude journal

Affirmations in a daily planner can also increase happiness. Affirmations are positive statements used to combat negative thinking patterns. There is a lot more to affirmations than simply complimenting yourself - affirmations rewire your ways of thinking.

A daily planner is perfect for use with affirmations. Before writing down daily tasks, you can write affirmations to boost your self-belief and focus your mind.

Tailor your affirmations to fit your daily planner goals. Are your tasks fitness related? A positive affirmation might be, ‘I am...strong and I WILL get fit!’ What about creative writing? How about: ‘I am...imaginative. I believe in my ability as a writer!’

Keep your affirmations in your mind throughout the day. Repeat your affirmations before you start on each task to remind yourself of your abilities.

Regular gratitude journaling has been shown to result in 5% to 15% increases in optimism.
