In one of my earlier blogs, I discussed how powerful gratitude can truly be in supporting our mental health and in shaping our mindset. As mentioned in that blog, studies have shown over the past few years that people who consciously express gratitude tend to be less depressed, anxious, and overall happier. Studies have also found that practicing gratitude can improve your sleep, boost your immune system, and enhance your relationships. If you are someone that likes to journal here are prompts to help you welcome an attitude of gratitude:
What was the best thing that happened this week?
Who are the people that make me feel loved and supported?
What is something that makes me happy?
Who or what in my life that I am happy to let go of?
What is something that I find inspiration in?
What is something that I find beauty in?
How can I use my favorite creative outlet to better myself?
What are 5 things that I am grateful for in this moment?
What is my favorite memory?
What is the biggest gift in my life right now?
What is a life lesson that I have learned?
What is a challenge the I am grateful for?
What is something beautiful that I saw today?
What is something that I am excited about?
What is something that makes me laugh?
What is something that I feel proud of?
What is something that brings me comfort?
What is the biggest challenge that I've overcome?

Despite the challenges we navigate through in life, there are always things that we can practice gratitude for, no matter how small.
