The gratitude journal app
Are you haunted by negative thoughts? Are you dissatisfied and do not feel able to change something in your life?
A step towards a happier life can be to remind yourself every day of what you are thankful for. With the help of a gratitude journal, also known as a happiness diary, you can focus on the positive things in your life in just a few minutes every day. Here you can find out how it works - and why the Perfectly Happy gratitude journal app is the ideal place for your positive thoughts!
What are the benefits of a gratitude journal or happiness diary?
The American psychologist Martin E. P. Seligman, who has researched in the field of depression, has proven it: Anyone who keeps a happiness diary feels more balanced and content after just one month. In his 2005 study, it was clearly shown that subjects who wrote down the three best moments of their day every evening felt happier than the control group, who wrote down childhood memories every day. This effect was still evident six months after the end of the study.
A happiness diary is therefore a proven psychological tool that can have a positive effect on your mood and your attitude towards life. As the name suggests, it's a journal of good memories - and the things you're grateful for.
The positive effects of gratitude
It's not happiness that brings you gratitude - it's gratitude that brings you happiness! And in several ways. If you think about how much good is already in your life, you will notice the following over time:
- You become more aware of the positive things in your life.
- You feel more balanced and less stressed.
- You develop a sense of what is really important to you in life.
- You attract more positive experiences, people and things that will in turn make you grateful and happy. You start a positive cycle of happiness, so to speak.
- Once you're feeling down, it's easier to focus on the good in your life.
What do I write in a happiness diary?
It only takes a few minutes a day to feel the positive effects of a gratitude journal. At the end of the day - preferably right before you go to bed - review your latest experiences. What good happened to you and what are you thankful for?
It can be a moment, a person or something material. Think about three to five points each day and write them down. Of course, great moments of happiness don't happen every day, but even small things in everyday life are worth being grateful for! Your comfortable bed, for example, the nice colleague who complimented you, the beautiful weather, one of your talents or a good song that you have just discovered. You will find out: Every day has something positive in store - you just have to be aware of it!
At first it can sometimes be a challenge. Over time, however, you will notice that it is becoming easier and easier for you to discover positive things - also because you are more attentive to the small and large good moments during the day. With just a few minutes a day, you can start a positive cycle of gratitude and the law of attraction.
Gratitude & the law of attraction - a power duo
Wondering what the law of attraction is all about? It's actually quite simple: It says that our thoughts determine how we behave and what we attract into our lives. So if you focus on what you are missing in your life or have not yet achieved, you will encounter more failures and missed opportunities. But if you focus on the positive and your goals, you work both consciously and unconsciously towards aligning your thoughts and actions with them. You will find that you will be far happier with the status quo of your life, but that new plans will also be easier to implement.
