Feeling sad? Practice gratitude.

Are overwhelming emotions disturbing you? Practice gratitude.

Want to practice kindness? Show gratitude.

Wish to show compassion? Shower gratitude.

And many more! There are various ways in which you can practice this magical tool too! But, one of the most preferred and suggested ways is– “maintaining a daily gratitude journal.” Gratitude journaling is a way to foster gratitude in your life and enjoy the benefits of the same.

Even I practice gratitude journaling and have seen its positive impact on my life. And on my journey of daily gratitude journaling, I got stuck on all things I can be thankful for! So, I created my list of daily gratitude journal prompts that helped me discover the good things in my life.

If you too are planning to start your daily gratitude journal or you are feeling stuck these daily gratitude journal prompts are here for your rescue!

What Are Gratitude Journal Prompts?

Prompts are open-ended statements that help us see the good in the environment that we live in.

Even in the case of gratitude journal apps they provide you with a space to journal your thoughts and daily gratitude journal prompts to help you with your journaling. So, if you are an old school person like me who prefers working with pen and paper this is the perfect space for you!

Note: Gratitude journaling is very flexible! So you don’t necessarily have to stick with the same prompts. Feel free to modify them as per your requirements. You can identify and journal more than three things. You can replace the word grateful with other similar words like “thankful,” “appreciative” and more.

Let us explore some life-changing daily gratitude journal prompts or daily positive journal prompts.
