It’s November, which means it’s the season to be grateful (and eat a lot)! In fact, regularly taking the time to think about and even write out what you’re grateful for in a gratitude journal is a great practice that has been scientifically proven to make people happier.
The only thing is that it can be a bit of a challenge to find things to be grateful for every single day, especially if you’re going through a hard time. But the truth is that no matter how bleak your circumstances may look, there’s always something to be grateful for. Here are just three items you may want to write about in your next gratitude journal entry.
Air to Breathe
It’s basic, but the oxygen you’re breathing in every day is what lets you be alive! Take a deep breath. Doesn’t that feel great?
Your Loved Ones
As the Beatles said, we get by with a little help from our friends (and family). How lucky are we to have them by our side to lean on?
Water to Drink
Do you have access to clean water to drink? That means you’re in a more fortunate position than 11% of the world’s population. That’s definitely not something to take for granted.
See, when you really think about it, there’s plenty to be grateful for. We don’t know about you, but we sure want to grab our gratitude journals right now.
