Keeping a Gratitude Journal Changed My Life… and it Can Make You Happier Too!

Something powerful happens when you write down your experiences, hopes, dreams, fears and aspirations for the future. As you give your thoughts physical form, they take on a power of their own. They go from being transient to transformative!

In this morning’s show, I want to talk about the positive impact that keeping a gratitude journal has had on my life – in terms of happiness and peace. Then, I want to offer a few suggestions for how you might get started with your own gratitude journal, if you are interested.

Yoga is a moving meditation. Find peace and achieve balance with our FREE gentle yoga flows classes.

Do you keep a journal? Do you ever write down what you are grateful for? What do you write about?
