Miracle Day at Work: Gratitude and the Power of Daily Journaling

Today I traveled to work by ferry.

I was so grateful to go to work by ferry today.

Usually, I have to drive on the motorway to work.

However, today I worked in our new office in the City for the first time.

I have worked and studied in the City for many years in the past, so I know the streets well.

However, today was different.

I looked up at the big skyscrapers.

Felt like New York! ;)

I have been practicing daily gratitude.

I keep a gratitude journal and write about what I am grateful for before I go to sleep.

Keeping a gratitude journal helps me acknowledge the beautiful world next to me.

So, HOW can I be Grateful?

I highly recommend keeping a gratitude journal to bring gratitude into your daily life.

Start by writing 3 things you are grateful for that day.

Studies have shown writing gratitude before sleep makes one’s mindset positive aiding in sleep.

For example:

  • I am grateful to exercise this morning.

  • I am grateful for that person’s funny joke.

  • I am grateful for the beautiful sky.

Gratitude is the most healing of all emotions

Being able to appreciate what the world is giving has made me much happier.

I was so grateful for the little things in the day.
