If you're already practising the simple act of journaling, you might already know the power it has to encourage daily gratitude.
Gratitude journaling is like a daily dose of positivity. It helps you focus on the good things in life, fostering contentment, joy, and appreciation. It's a way to nurture your wellbeing, combat stress, and enhance self-awareness.
You can keep it short and sweet – just jot down some thoughts or a few words. The idea is to enjoy the process, not make it a chore. If you're short on time, try expressing your gratitude out loud during your daily commute, and when applying your favourite Embodyme Nurturing Body Oil at the start or end of your day.
Here are our top 20 gratitude prompts to get you started:
