Gratitude Journal

Gratitude journals are a popular and effective intervention from the field of positive psychology. The goal of a gratitude journal is to increase our focus on positive experiences, which improves well-being.

The Gratitude Journal worksheet begins with a one-page info sheet, followed by several pages for journaling practice. The info portion of the handout explains the positive benefits of gratitude, tips and instructions for keeping a good journal, and a series of prompts.
