Keeping a Gratitude Journal
From the bottom menu, you can enter the gratitude journal.
The gratitude journal is a space devoted to noting your blessings in life. Some journals are for planning, free association, or even venting, but the Nuna gratitude journal is for thoughts and feelings of gratitude.
Gratitude is defined by psychologists as a positive emotional response to either giving or receiving a benefit from someone (Emmons & McCullough, 2004).
This diary of grateful moments takes on research and principles from positive psychology to promote mental well-being and lower levels of stress, anxiety and depression.
Practicing gratitude is effectively proven to help people experience more positivity, improve their health, become more resilient, and able to build strong relationships (Unanue et al., 2019).
Ultimately, gratitude is a great way to rewire your brain towards positive thinking and unlock happiness.
In the gratitude journal, you can easily view and edit previous entries of gratitude.
By clicking on the + New entry button you can add new ones and see daily inspirational gratitude prompts that are designed to help you start the habit of gratitude. It takes less than 5 minutes to get started.
💡 A tip to get started
How you use the gratitude journal is up to you. But, we easily tend to forget to practice gratitude in our everyday lives. So, it can be helpful to create a simple routine of gratitude journaling by linking it to an existing habit or routine in your everyday life.
For example, you can make a gratitude entry every day before settling into bed. The habit of reflecting on your day and generating grateful emotions in the evening can be a great way to wind down before heading off to a sound sleep 🙏😴
