Forces you to think positively every day. I found it easy to find things I was thankful for so I gave myself the task of finding a different five things every day, no repeats. (Otherwise I'd say over and over again, I'm thankful for my family, for my health, for my dogs, etc.) Some days were harder than others but I did it before I went to sleep and it ended my day on a positive note.

This is a great way to start keeping track of things you are grateful for.

I read this book years ago and don't remember it specifically- but I have to give it 5 stars just because it inspired me to keep a gratitude journal, which I have off and on for years, and that has greatly enriched my life.

You don't really need the book. But, its a good way to encourage you do to it. Just list 5 things you are thankful for every day.

The jurnal in beautiful but I never would have used it if I did not take a workshop... The book alone is a lot to consume.
Natalie
