The #1 thing you can do to increase your happiness today
Do you crave more happiness?
Do you desire more energy?
Are you seeking more mindfulness?
Do you wish you could reach your goals?
If you answered ‘YES’ to any of these, then buy a gratitude journal and use it. It’s really not much of a secret, yet so many people overlook this simple task to increase their overall level of happiness and content.
Studies have shown that writing three things you’re thankful for everyday, can increase your overall level of happiness and give you a better sense of control over your life.
Keeping a gratitude journal has been linked to being more energized and being more likely to reach your goals.
You can use your journal in the morning, at bedtime, after work, after dinner, or anytime that you have a moment to reflect on your day. If you have family members, buy them a journal too and get everyone shifting to a greater level of happiness.
Even a child can write down three things they are thankful for, even if it’s only Mom, Dad, and Food everyday! Eventually they will develop a more robust awareness and mindfulness, and their journals will become a daily habit as they mature into adulthood.
