THE JOY OF JOURNALLING!
Boost your mood with pen and paper says gratitude expert and founder of The Self-love Project, ELOISE KING
TIPS FOR EFFECTIVE GRATITUDE JOURNALLING?
Write down three things you’re grateful for each day or just choose one thing from the past 24 hours to write about in more detail. It may relate to a work or personal relationship, or even a surprise event, such as a smile from a stranger. The most important tip, however, is that you take time to feel the gratitude as you remember or relive each experience.
HOW IS IT DIFFERENT TO REGULAR JOURNALLING?
The aim is to really focus on the positive aspects of your life and to take time out to acknowledge them, so you are moving from just putting words on paper to getting in touch with your innermost feelings.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Expressing gratitude increases oxytocins (the love molecule) and creates stronger connections and bonds. Journalling also has a long history of being used for greater clarity and wellbeing, so combine the two for better health, happiness, relationships, p, competitive work edge and overall wellbeing.
