How do you practice gratitude?
I have a gratitude journal I write in every night before I sleep. I write down all the things that happened during the day that I’m grateful for. It gives me a sense of peace before I sleep. I believe that it is also the reason I wake up joyful every morning.
Do you like it when people thank you for something you did for them? I love to let others know that I am grateful for the things they do. I sometimes forget to say “thank you”, however, I’m definitely grateful.
Dana Smithers is an author who has published a 52 week gratitude journal. This journal is based on the Law of Attraction as she is a Law of Attraction (LOA) certified coach as well as a coach for women entrepreneurs. I write in this journal every Sunday going back over my week to record everything that happened the previous week that I’m grateful for. It’s a profound way to find and maintain joyfulness is my life.
