23 Benefits of Using a Gratitude Journal
There are just so many benefits of using a gratitude journal that I can’t possibly mention them all in one go.
I love learning about new research that shows how gratitude can do this or that BUT as with any research, it always sits much better with me if I know personally, or know of someone who can vouch for it personally as well.
This is the reason why I love teaching people about the amazing benefits you can gain by practising gratitude, and why I try and get parents to teach their kids to use gratitude and for schools to implement gratitude as part of their day… because it is JUST SO GOOD!
Here are just some of the AMAZING PERSONAL BENEFITS OF GRATITUDE that are coming out in the research:
- Improved sleep – and the many flow-on effects if you are getting good sleep
- Improved immunity – meaning you are less likely to get sick
- You tend to exercise more
- Increased energy
