10 Gratitude Journaling Prompts to Cultivate Happiness

1. Morning Magic: Begin your day by jotting down three things you're grateful for as soon as you wake up. They can be as small as the warmth of your bed or the aroma of morning coffee.

2. Nature's Gifts: Reflect on the beauty of the natural world. What aspects of nature, like a blooming flower or a serene sunset, fill you with wonder and gratitude?

3. Acts of Kindness: Write about a recent act of kindness you witnessed or received. How did it make you feel, and why are you thankful for that experience?Bullet journal gratitude log by @magicalbujo(Bullet journal gratitude log by @magicalbujo )

4. Personal Growth: Celebrate your own growth and achievements. What skills or qualities have you developed that you're proud of? How have these changes positively impacted your life?

5. Comforts of Home: Consider the comforts and conveniences of your home. From a cosy blanket to a well-stocked kitchen, what elements of your home are you grateful for?

6. Positive People: Express gratitude for the people in your life who uplift and support you. Describe a friend, family member, or colleague whose presence makes a difference in your day.

7. Small Pleasures: Embrace the little things that bring joy. It could be the sound of rain, a favourite song, or the taste of a delicious meal. What small pleasures brighten your life?Gratitude log bujo by @abulletjournaladay(Gratitude log bujo by @abulletjournaladay )
