I made a focused effort this year to be more consistent with my journaling, and it seems to be working! I’ve been writing 6 days per week since the beginning of 2023! All I needed to do was weave journaling into a part of my daily morning routine. Who knew it was that simple?
One thing I’ve been doing to start my journaling is to write 3 things that I’m grateful for. I’ve heard a lot of people suggest that, so I thought I’d give it a try. It’s amazing after a few weeks how many things you have to be grateful for. We all know that, but it’s different when you actually see them written down.
I’ve enjoyed recalling things I’m grateful for when I journal in the morning. Not only is it a good reminder of how much I have to be grateful for, it also points me in the right direction mentally every morning. When I start my day with thoughts of gratitude, it feels like I’m setting my mind up to be grateful all day, which is right where I want to be.
