It can be challenging to be grateful some days, especially lately when the world seems to be so grim and we’re separated from the people we love. But using gratitude journal prompts can improve our days immensely and help us take stock of what we’re thankful for.
A gratitude journal is simply where you write down all of these little tidbits of thankfulness that will help us realize that even on the bad days, good things happen. Recording a daily gratitude journal can help keep you accountable to yourself and remind you of the things you’re accomplishing, even when the days seem to be moving slowly.
