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.


Gratitude Benefits

  • Boosts self-confidence

The gratitude benefits above are from Research.com, a scientific platform for scientists. The full article is here which goes deep into the science behind gratitude.

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.
