I have been thinking a lot about gratitude lately. At the start of the year I started something new. I created a Happiness Jar. Now every day before going to bed, I write down the happiest part of my day and place it in the jar. Some days the happy thing I write down is so small, almost insignificant really to anyone else, but in it goes because it’s the truth.
The second thing I do is journal and after I have done my journaling for the day, I finish the entry off with one thing I am grateful for. I have so much to be grateful for but I am focusing on just one thing for the day.
What this means is that I am thinking about something happy and have a grateful heart as I am turning in. It is changing the end of day for me and I am not falling asleep with all these negative thoughts or worries circling around in my head. Just a small change I know, but it is making a difference for me.
Am I sleeping better; am I finding it easier to face each day; am I less stressed? Not yet but it’s early days! I am determined to keep going with it and you can feel free to check up on me.
