If you are looking at purchasing a gift for someone and you don’t know what to get or you have that fussy friend that you always seem to struggle to find a gift for then look no further! I was just given one of the best gifts I have ever received. It is one of those items you never seem to buy for yourself but always want. It never quite fits into the budget and seems a little frivolous to purchase when the expenses always seem to be piling up. That’s why I absolutely love this as a gift idea.
It’s a gratitude journal.
I know I may be a little late to the gratitude journal party but I have actually tried keeping one before. I bought a cheap lined note book and made my own type of DIY gratitude journal. I would try and write three things I was grateful for at the end of each day. I ended up losing motivation and never felt inspired by the process. That is why I love my gift.
The gratitude journal that my sister bought for me is beautiful. It looks and feels beautiful; and it feels special to spend my time writing in it. It only asks four simple questions and it is a part of my day that I try my hardest to stick to. It asks two simple questions of you in the morning and two at night time. I love that it is so easy and gets me thinking positively about my day from the moment I wake up. It also makes me focus on what I am going to try and achieve for the day. It’s also been shown that focusing and noting down what makes you grateful on a regular basis actually helps the brain to recognise it more in your normal daily life. It’s so simple but so far I have found it to be incredibly motivating. I am getting more done in my days as a result of setting myself a goal each morning and actively working towards it when I find the time.
