I think taking time to cultivate gratitude is important. A grateful heart is a wonderful thing–you are happier and the world looks a little brighter. But it can be challenging to do it when your days are hectic and your brain won’t stop overloading with different thoughts. That’s why a project like a
gratitude journal is so great,  it pushes you to interrupt your routine and focus on what’s going on around and inside of you.  I try to fill in my gratitude journal around 15/20 minutes before I go
to bed as it gives you time to reflect back on your day and think about all the positive experiences you had.

Starting and maintaining a journal can be difficult at first because it is another thing to remember to do, but after a while of keeping the gratitude journal, I promise you it’s worth it!!

The best time to start is now!  There are several available in local book stores and on line so have a look around and see what appeals to you.
