Why and how to keep a gratitude diary
Whilst a gratitude diary is a very ‘American’ type of activity that us Brits generally laugh at, it is certainly an effective way of changing mind set before bed, reducing stress hormones and encouraging a good night’s sleep.
Firstly buy a small book and a pen in colours you like.
Complete this exercise every night before bed
- Right down goals you have for the next day. (This helps unload the mind.)
- In the next paragraph write down a list of things you are thankful / grateful for that have happened that day. (What you appreciate, appreciates.)
- In the next part say thank you for things you want to happen that have not happened yet. (This encourages positivity for the future.)
Give it a go, especially if you are struggling with getting to sleep or staying asleep and you are experiencing any significant stressors that might be playing on your mind.
