I learned all about the Law of Attraction and the power of positive thinking many years ago, but never really understood just how powerful positive affirmations can be. In today's times, it can be pretty difficult to find something to be grateful for every single day; however, if you can make a conscious effort to try and find even one positive aspect of your life, you are well on your way to finding many more.
Journaling is a great way to release stress and compartmentalize scattered thought processes, but making a conscious effort to only journal about positive things can have a wonderful effect on your overall being. Starting a Gratitude Journal is a way to start (or end) your day on a positive note, which will not only impact you on a personal level, but will also impact how others perceive you.
If you have never journaled before, it can be pretty intimidating. I mean, we are all busy people, and the idea of sitting down to write affirmations every single day can be a little daunting. If you take it by small steps, and maybe only make it a point to journal once a week, then twice a week, you will eventually make it a habit to do it every day.
Keeping a Gratitude Journal can help lower your stress levels by focusing your attention on the positive and not the negative. When you are feeling blue, it can help to refocus your attention and thoughts to the things in your life that truly matter. By writing down positive traits about yourself in your journal, you can become more self-aware, and shift away from feelings of self-doubt.
