Daily Gratitude Journal

Keeping a gratitude journal encourages us to pay attention to the pleasurable things in life we might take for granted. Writing about the good things in our lives helps us become more attuned to everyday joys, and can shift the emotional tone of our life. This is one of many freely available gratitude journal templates to help you begin intentionally reflecting on the good in your life.
