Gratitude is one of the most powerful feelings we experience as human beings. Nurturing our habit of feeling thankful is a simple practice that has the ability to deeply impact the quality of our life.
The benefits of it, have been proved in many recent pieces of research. It’s an easy exercise that may lead to better sleep, more focus and mind clarity, a deeper understanding of our inner self, and greater comprehension of what’s truly important in life. The act of writing down what you are thankful for day-by-day, it also creates a sort of happiness file that you can refer to every time you want to.
There are many big and small things you can be grateful for every day. It may be a person, an object, a personal skill you have or something more general like the beautiful world we live in and life itself. It doesn’t matter! At the beginning, you may find difficult to choose something noteworthy, but remember that everything counts!
How-to start with your Weekly Gratitude Journal:
This printable was thought for one week, but you can print it for as many week as you want or need. It’s made up by the weekly page and seven other pages, one for each day of the week. You’ll need just 10 minutes a day: five in the morning, which I like to call the planning and five minutes during the night, to fill in the appreciation part.
It’s both a gratitude journal and a weekly planning and each section was designed with a specific purpose in mind. Besides planning your day and setting up your priorities, there’s a section of the morning dedicated to yourself. It’s very important that you write it down this part and seriously committing to it. Please don’t think “Maybe I’ll do it, if I’ll have the time”. Planning means deciding you are going to do something and set time apart for it. It doesn’t have to be something expensive, complicated or time-consuming. My suggestion is to assign at least 10/ 15 minutes to it and start little. Some very simple suggestion for the “love myself” part are:
Before going to bed, take 5 minutes to think about the day that just passed and focus on the good stuff. What are you grateful for? What was the best part of your day? Again, start little. You may be thankful for the sunshine, for the big smile the coffee guy gave you this morning or your healthy body.
Our days are made up of many little moments: focus on those and don’t take anything for granted.
Following there are some very things to be thankful for:
The “I pat myself on the back for” section is one of my favorite and I encourage you to fill it every day with something different. Being proud of yourself every day, at least once a day, has an incredible effect on your self-esteem and it creates an addiction pattern to boost your self-confidence.

Years ago, when I was living in the Caribbean I starting looking for something that was missing. I didn’t know exactly what it was as my life was great, and many friends back home would have walked over hot coals to get just a month like that. I was living in tropical paradise, making good...
The book is broken up into four “lectures” and although there is no mention on asanas, it explains the basic principles behind the spiritual aspects of yoga, consciousness and the different stages of the mind. I recommend it to people who want to discover the origins of yoga and its involvement with body, mind and...
