The Power of Practicing Gratitude

The Power of Practicing Gratitude

In school we are used to target or goal setting to guide our focus and develop our mastery of academic subjects.

This last half term of the year I ask you to try what maybe a new way for many of you to bring about positive change - a daily gratitude journal.

I ask you to do this as a way to help you navigate our changing world with gratitude and grace.

I truly believe experiencing gratitude regularly will bring about many positive changes.

Gratitude gets your heart involved not just your mind and that’s where real change begins.

I recommend you write down three things you’re grateful for each day. They can be things that went well for yourself, things that someone did for you, things you are grateful for.

You can write this as a sentence or boil it down to one word. You can write them, draw them, make a collage - whatever suits you.

You can also do this whenever you like. Some people like to do this In the morning to start the day positively. Others like to write at the end of the day as a way to wind down.

While your gratitude journal is private, I’d be interested to know how it impacts your outlook.
