Do you keep a gratitude journal? A gratitude journal is a daily record of the things for which you are thankful. These things can be large or small. Some examples of things you might include are:I am thankful for my family; I am thankful for my job; I am thankful for the opportunity to eat breakfast. The benefits of a gratitude journal include increased physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. It also allows you to remember the positive aspects of life when things do not seem to be going your way. Give it a try. You will be thankful you did!
