A gift for you!
I made you a 5-minute bedtime gratitude journal worksheet to help you connect with a grateful and positive state of mind every night before bed. This way, you will consciously acknowledge all your positive experiences of every single day.
Indeed, I couldn’t be more excited to share this beautiful template with you. But before we start, let’s chat about why living in gratitude is essential to experiencing a good and loving life.
Why live in gratitude?
“It is not happy people who are thankful; it is thankful people who are happy.”Unknown
What would you answer if I asked where you focus more energy, on the things you have or are currently missing?. Unfortunately, it is so common to center your attention on what you want and are not getting; or even on what you have already lost (let’s say time, love, health, money, family, work, places, things, memories, etc.). I do it all the time! I refer to sentences like I have done exercise only two times this week (instead of saying something as I look forward to working out again!). For many reasons, this way of thinking is connected with a lack of something. It is a state of scarcity and deficit. And it attracts more and more absence.
On the contrary, living in abundance is experiencing a state of contentment and satisfaction. Abundance feeds our self-esteem and confidence and helps us stay resilient during tough times. It’s also expanding, creating a flourishing environment around us. Like attracts like, so when you live in abundance and look around, you’ll find positive, confident people with similar mindsets.
The power of gratitude
Considering the famous quote, “living in a state of gratitude is the gateway to grace,” the daily practice of gratitude seems to be the antidote to a poor mindset.
Let’s test this concept right now! Are you in? Ok great. Please take just a few moments to close your eyes. Take three long breathings, making your exhales slightly longer than you used to, relaxing your body and mind. Once you feel at ease, ask yourself: What is something I feel entirely thankful to have or to be experiencing right now? It might be your family, friends, pets, job, health, or the food on your plate. It could be a personal accomplishment or even the sun rising this beautiful morning. Did you get it? Ok, now let’s go deeper and connect with that. Sit with the image, and feel the feeling. Where do you think it is? How does it feel? Is it expanding or contracting? Do you feel fuller or emptier? Is it getting bigger and more powerful? Notice how your body feels. Notice how your heart feels. Are you feeling more love and grace?
IT FEELS ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS, ah?
So, yes, it is true. Gratitude brings feelings of love and expansion.
Could it be so easy? Well, not necessarily because we need to forget it quickly. We need a little bit of help and direction, especially in those moments when life gets complex and tricky. In this case, journaling can be beneficial in assisting us in connecting every day with a state of gratefulness and grace.
