Do you keep a gratitude journal?

Querubim Z.
I try to be grateful during the day by enjoying simple things, but I don’t write these. I plan on doing this really soon 🙂
Chris Y.
Yes, I keep a notebook and pen in ny beside table and write in there most nights before I go to bed what im grateful for. I also write any worries I have down so I don't think about them in bed.
Suzie P.
Yea I do, the question is, do I use it all the time? No I do not. However, it is a habit I am working on. To actually sit down and write down what I am grateful for. Writing makes it stick than just thinking it in mug head, also confessing it is great as well, combine with writing, there is no way I’ll forget!
Adrianna S.
No, I do not have a gratitude journal however, I do have a prayer journal. And I try to start my prayers off with gratitude so I guess you can say in a way that I do have a gratitude journal
Hil Ria I.
I don’t keep a gratitude journal, but I’m thinking of making one for my nightly routine. I feel like journaling before bed will help me a lot especially if I write affirmations before bed.
Vanessa X.
Yes, every night I write down my main focus for the next day, the 5 most important tasks for the next day, what I should avoid. Then I rate my current day from 1-10, write down 3 things I learned that day and 3 things I'm grateful for.
I've been doing this for years whenever I feel like I need to ground myself.
Malou A.
Yes I do. My journal isn't just for gratitude, it's also for dumping thoughts, prayers needed, things I'm contemplating, anything I feel needs to be put on paper. I am starting to send at least 1 grateful text to 1 person daily. This has helped to build my confidence back up.
Nicky U.
No, but I should, just not a handwritten one. Handwriting things tend to make me not appreciate nor remember them as much. I learned that one in school.
Anjali T.
Yes, I started over a year ago and it’s been great. I find it hard to stop, there’s always so much to be thankful for, and it feels so much better and more uplifting than listing out grudges or stewing over negative experiences.
Gabby P.
Yes i do. I think it helped a lot with my mental health and dealing with a lot of feelings when I was especially struggling. It helped me be more aware of all the good things in my life and I definitely recommend it.
Br Gida N.
No, I do not keep a gratitude journal. Recently I've been reflecting and those times have lead me to think about getting a physical journal for me to write in. We shall see, however I am very much thinking about purchasing one.
Rosie Z.
Yes! I keep a gratitude journal so I can write down what I am grateful for every day. I keep this so I can express my gratitude for certain things in my life. I write down three things that I am grateful for when I get home from school. I do this so I can feel good and ready to take on my night. I think this is important just to take a few extra minutes to write down things you love and want to recognize. I definitely recommend doing this because it is a total game changer.
Diya Z.
I've always thought of keepong a gratitude journal but never made the effort to actually keep one. But ever since i joined fabulous and picked 'be grateful', i started keeping a journal🌸
Maxwell O.
Yes, I do,it is something that I started 4 days back and it consists of questions that I have to answer on a daily basis in order draw nearer to myself and truly discover self love.
Jonathan C.
Yeah , i read the magic by Rohnda Byrne , and i writ3 it down on my phone notes it is awesome when you write it down and activate all our senses and subconcious to highlight the importance of the writting process so it resonates faster and deeper
Eunice B.
yes I do I have a mental health journal where I write everything down including my healing process I find jt really helpful to practice gratitude as it makes the person even more grateful for the little things that happen
Sumaiya X.
Yes, I have a gratitude journal. Every night I write what I am grateful for the day on there. To my opinion, everyone should have a gratitude journal.
Jeffrey F.
Yes, it helps me to see more of good rather than all bad and negative things around me. It keeps the environment that I live in a positive way.
Roshaan N.
I did on fabulous. But ironically I just deleted that task today because it was in my morning routine so I had to write something I was grateful for everyday. I had to delete it because it started to feel overwhelming for me. So maybe I’ll keep a real physical one in which I’ll try to write at least once a week.
Olive N.
I personally keep a journal but I do normally write a couple of gratitude entries per week which I find easier than having a whole separate journal.
Clodagh F.
Yes I keep a gratitude journal it is a journal that is meaningful and special to me it is where I write one thing I am grateful for every night before bed I usually write about how grateful I am for experiences, thoughts and highlights of my day, it makes me feel happy and contented with my life afterwards and I'm eager the next day to look out for things to be grateful for, which makes my an overall more positive person with a brighter outlook on life. My gratitude journal makes up a great collection of reasons why I am appreciative of my life.🌞😄
Saria N.
I don’t currently keep a gratitude journal, but I’m about to! Maybe I’ll keep it on Evernote 🙂 since I can speak out loud and it will turn my voice to text. Then later, I can search the journal for certain events. Speaking out loud is more efficient than typing everything.
Kylie A.
I keep a gratitude list. I keep a list coping skills that work for me when I am under stress. On my coping skills list, "reflecting on what I am grateful for" is one of my coping skills. On the back of the list, I write what I am grateful for.
Jana L.
yess i do and even i kept that habit in mind and had applications for it to not to forget even i took a challenge in it💖
Emiliano X.
I do keep a journal, but even when I didn't; I took a time on my meditation to be thankfull. 3 things about my life, 3 things about my career and 3 things about myself. You can add more if you want or if you can think of only one, that's enough. It will eventually bring to mind more things
Savannah O.
Yes I keep a gratitude journal and I have come to love and appreciate my practice. I have found out that it is really true that the more gratitude you express the more you find to be grateful for. Gratitude trains your brain to look for the good.
Fiorella C.
mantengo una rutin ade gratitud dia a dia,por cosas pequeñas,acciones del otro,situaciones quizas displacenteras,agradezco porque alguna enseñanza me va a dejar.Me agradezco a mi,todo lo que atraigo todo el amor que tengo incondicionalmente hacia mi o hacia otro
Liva Y.
Absolutely! Although I don't use a notebook and pen due to privacy issues, I use the Mind Alcove app which has a lot of features. I recommend you check it out. There's also another app called Insight Journal that uses Artificial Intelligence to give advice and appropriate responses to your entries. Both of them are very good. Practicing gratitude will have a big effect on your viewpoint of life. Upsetting events will not faze you too much, and you learn to maintain a stoic calmness in every situation. If you haven't started journaling, let alone journaling gratitude, I would REALLY recommend it.
Angelique T.
I tend to keep a prayer journal more than a gratitude journal. The journal I currently have has a space for gratitude in which I try to right 3 things I’m grateful for each day. I do find this practice helpful because it helps to point out that there are positives in each and very day. I am a person who has begun to dwell more in the negative. Gratitude helps to shift that mentality toward the positive.
Sacha Y.
I do keep a physical gratitude journal and also one on my phone which generates prompts. I try to write one morning and night.
Shelley A.
I have done in the past, and it was very good. I haven't done so I a few months and I can feel the difference in my daily mood from not doing it. I would highly recommend keeping a daily gratitude journal, and I will be starting this again as well.
Elijah E.
No but I have been wanting to write more gratitude list. I never thought of a journal. I am in AA and gratitude lists are one way we try and keep our thinking right and build our connection with a higher power. I think I will start a gratitude journal now.
Ms Y.
Not specifically… I keep a regular journal, and regularly mention what I’m grateful for… But it’s basically just for everything.
Johanne B.
No. Well, not a physical mind but I try to say at least one thing that I am grateful for each day. This really helps if your having a bad day.
Areeb X.
Yes. It was really helpful for me.I really suggest you to try it yourself. I'm sure you'll get to know how great and worthy you feel about yourself after doing gratitude journal on a daily basis.
Jacob Z.
So I would love to…….I definitely don't have a specific journal for this but I do have a journal that prompts me ideas to write and share my thoughts on everyday but yes surely I will love to have a journal where I can show my gratitude towards each ounce of my life
Drea P.
Yes. I keep one everyday. Sometimes I journal at the end of my day and sometimes at the begining of my day to keep myself accountable.
Qui U.
As a matter of fact, I just started a new one with the LOA planner that I purchased from Amazon. Instead of writing about the action I took to show gratitude, I write about the feeling that prompted me to be grateful. I celebrate every small win, blessing, and even when someone shows me appreciation. Too many people “say” they NEVER get a “thank you,” so I keep track of mine as proof not to hold on to that negative belief.
Gesine U.
Yes everyday I right in it and I put my thoughts I'll do like the weather the calendar and I made a calendar and then I'll go and check off each day and write what I've done that day
Robin N.
Yes every morning I write down things I am grateful for.
It helps me stop thinking of what ifs, shouldas, & wouldas & be happy with all have been blessed with
Nolan C.
I use the fabulous gratitude journal every night I am greatful for the even the tiniest positive things in my life the more you are greatful the more you create positivity in your life and the more your positive energies grow to counteract the negative ones. Poeple or curcumstances will align with your positive energy which will dissolve your negative energy little by little, it's a process so you have to be patient with yourself and drink water everyday and take everything one step at a time.
Isak Q.
Yes, the one in this app. I try to fill it every day.. and find the little things to be grateful for, even on an uneventful or bad day.
Ruby E.
I have a prompted journal from typo, where it askes what I was grateful for during that day. I find this more helpful then freewriting, as it allows me to gain a new perspective to view my day and find gratitude in small things 🙂
Tommy G.
The truth is I had a gratitude journal and I would do it every night, reflecting on my day and what I did good! But I’m busy you know I am a dancer and my gratitude journal was always something I forgot to do and it made me stressed having to catch up days so I stopped and I think I can do better without it to be honest.
Karl Hermann X.
I do journal and like to write my gratitudes in notes or a physical diary as it helps me clearly see what my thoughts are about and sort the stuff i am really Grateful about
Aurora Z.
I don't necessarily have a journal JUST for gratitude…I usually just find the closest notebook to me (I have lots) and start writing things I'm grateful for in there 🙂 same goes for journaling! Right now though, I'm trying to make use of this large notebook I've had since high school that I don't really draw in, and I'm trying to convert that into a journaling space 🙂 Thank you for asking!
Carl U.
Yes… But not consistently… Sometimes I feel like I'm writing these only for obligation and I'm not feeling as grateful.. idk… Itsonetimes it just does not feel full
Elizabeth O.
No but I use the gratitude in fabulous and it asks me every day to put in a paragraph of gratitude for that day so I would recommend putting gratitude on your routines for the evening or whenever is suitable for you that day have an amazing day.
Subhidambonu F.
Yes of course. I really keen on keeping the gratitude journal. I can talk with it, may write my inside feelings which I can't tell anyone. So I'm ready)
Savannah O.
No I don't have a gratitude journal. I use to journal all the time some years ago, a prayer journal. I miss that at times but I'm stuck getting started again. I've been using this app to journal as gratitude is one of my new habits.
Haribo N.
no, i don’t keep a gratitude journal. normally i would type down all of my thoughts on a document and write some affirmations down, or write down some things i’m grateful for! it keeps me from worrying and i wouldn’t like someone to try and take it away from me (i don’t like leaving things that are valuable laying around somewhere random. some people don’t listen when you say “please don’t touch my things”).
Lyam Q.
Not a physical one, no. I do entries on here every night just to add a bit of positivity to my routine after completing more difficult tasks in the afternoon. They're logged so in a sense, I do keep one, and I enjoy it even though it took me a while to get into it.

It's okay if it's not for you, if you choose another app to do it on, or would rather a physical one. We all have preferences!

Daneen L.
Yes, I do keep a gratitude journal with myself and I have crossed 100 entries. I love writing journal and it makes me happy and my life has changed due to it.
Naja W.
generally not really i appreciate so many things in my life but in the way of thinking of tgem and thanking allah for it wich is called in islam الحمد _ el hamd _ in the meaning of thanking good for everything we have
Erwan S.
I do, I put even the smallest details in it. It helps me to stay positive even when it's hard. There's always, always something to be grateful for.
Rachel F.
Sometimes…I have a note pad on my nightstand that I like to write down 10 things I was grateful for that day, but I often forget. I have more recently been telling my 4 months old things I am grateful for at bedtime.
Tyller C.
No I do not. I have always had trouble with taking time to wrote stuff down like that. I never really enjoyed doing stuff like that. I do enough writing for school I guess haha. For the "Be Grateful" goal, I use it as a spiritual session by reading my bible and praying. That is how I show I am grateful.
Debszz N.
No I don’t. If anything my journals are online , on this app other apps and notes. I can’t just sit and journal on paper.
Cherry O.
yes! i prefer to have it because it can be a good reminder during difficult times when i cannot seem to notice anything positive about my life. also, it helps me see things in a brighter light. 🙂
Jake O.
Yes I keep a handwritten journal on my nightstand for a gratitude list. I notice when doing the list nightly before bed I don’t ruminate near as much on the negative thoughts that tend to run my mind at night. It’s a great tool for overthinkers with insomnia who tend to over analyze everything and stopping to just be grateful from the simple little things to the big things, like children, family, spirituality, etc. all really help to remind you of what life is really about. Get to the essence of your life and let the bs that we overthink about go.
Lorraine Z.
Yes I , I specifically went to buy a journal that I find pretty and put it on my nightstand to make sure Its part of my daily routine
Alexandria T.
Yes, I do five things that I am grateful and but a prsyer underneath. Also the front on the page I put ehat I could have improved during the day and what I inproved on.
Carola Y.
No but it's always in my mind because of fabulous app is so helpful for making me always remembering to be grateful and having the feeling of gratitude
Kittu X.
No but I thinking about to keep a diary of gratitude journal but I do gratitude in my phone and I right thing which I am grateful for
Tatiano T.
No, I do not. But I feel I would be more thankful for I have. A quote I like to say is " If you think you do not have enough look at people who have less."
Brittany F.
No not really I never thought about that but dearly I think it'll be a good idea I just don't know how,where and when to start using and even how to create it
Landon B.
I don't keep a gratitude journal, but to help me with my habit of be grateful, I write on a post it note the date and what I am grateful for and keep it in a box, that way I can look back at what I was grateful for that day.
Florian Y.
Yeah I do. I wtite down the things that I am Grateful for everyday before going to sleep and write a To-Do list whenever i woke up
Meagan E.
Yes, I have kept a gratitude journal for a while. It helps to have something tangible, that you can go through when you are feeling lost
Vando I.
No I do not, I don't feel it's need to express your feelings onto a journal but rather give gratitude within your spirit and through meditation
Mitchell O.
I dont have a seperate journal though I am planning to start one. Eventhough , I do have a journal on my phone in this app that I fill in everyday now.
Theodore O.
No, but I use a blessing jar. Dyslexia can make putting my thought down on paper a challenge, but a small picture or just a line in a ribbon of paper. It's pretty, non sequential, non linear. Perfect for a brain wired a little differently, and it looks good on my shelf rather than hidden in a book. Out of sight out of mind can be problematic if I'm trying to keep up a habit. Seeing it regularly reminds me to add blessings and reminds me that I'm blessed 😊
Emma F.
I have a journal where I keep different things in. Sometimes, I write things I’m grateful for. Mostly, it’s for writing prompts that help with mental health or budget stuff
Elanis Z.
I have a journal that I acknowledge what I’m grateful for but I don’t use it nearly as often as I should. I was doing well with it for a little while but then I wasn’t able to make it into a solid habit and fell off. But I know when I used it, I felt good after so I need to try to get back into it but in finding it hard
Phoebe P.
No, but i’m trying to keep a journal for all my thoughts. I think there’s less pressure to do it every day, and say the right thing. I just take it out when I feel like it and say everything that’s on my mind.
Patryk X.
No, but I write sometimes letters. Just for me. About my life, school, feelings and thoughts. Don't let bad thoughts and emotions be in you. Let them out. You can talk to someone or write it down. It really helps.
Clifton W.
No. I write it in my daily planner. I felt that having several notebooks would confuse me, in fact, it is easier for me to write down everything in one notebook
Ruby N.
No not really but it's good to such it helps to clear the mind and just cleanse any negative vibe against someone or something you were not happy with or about
John N.
I’ve honestly never thought to do such a thing. I normally see post on social media and use that as inspiration but that normally gets clouded by everything else that I come across as well.
Molly N.
Yes! Though it’s more of just A journal not a gratitude journal. I don’t write in it everyday. That makes it seem more like a chore. So instead I write before night when I feel like it, or when I have something to say, good or bad! 🙂
Caroline W.
No I don't, I used to a jornal but lattely I have jornal that more.
But I think that is a great idea and I should definitely have one.
C Saro F.
Si, hace que tu corazón se calme cuando empiezas a decir esas palabras de gratitud, y te hace sentir feliz y agradecido de todo lo que tienes en el momento presente.
L W.
Yes, I do keep a gratitude journal. Each entry is a page long commitment where I list at least three things I am grateful for, and what it would mean to be without it. It doesn’t matter how big or small. It doesn’t matter if I don’t do it every day. Gratitude is an exercise of the present moment. It opens the heart on the hardest of days. Another benefit is the physical act of writing being good for the brain.
It helps to dedicate your journal, perhaps to a spiritual entity or ancestor. I use a bookmark that represents the figure I’ve dedicated my gratitude practice to. So every time I open my journal I am reminded of them.
Nicole X.
I did at one point…it was a self guided journal from Habit Nest and I loved it. However, I moved away from that during a very hard time in my life. It is still a very dark time in my life and I haven’t actually started the inner work to heal from that period. Today I am taking steps forward, albeit small steps but still steps
Chloe P.
I don't currently keep a gratitude journal. However I would really like to. Maybe an outline would be useful for me to get started.
Big O.
I used to have a five minute gratitude journal and when I finished it I bought a new journal. I use this current one to write my thoughts, what I’m grateful for, and my experiences throughout life.
Jessica Q.
Xoxo No, but i should for what I do is when I am having a moment an feeling blessed I stop what im doing an feel the presence of the gratitude I FEEL within myself an also share it with my children as well in that moment an also at times if I can write it down I will do that Xoxo
Dan P.
No not a specific gratitude journal, but I do have a journal/diary where I will occasionally list the things I’m grateful for, to counteract the more dark thoughts that I write down.
Isaac Q.
I do keep a gratitude Journal, I do it every night before I go to bed, and I write down 5 things that I am grateful for, I believe it is very good for my mental clarity and I openly tell people in my life that I am grateful for them.
