The Power of Keeping a Gratitude Journal
The Five Minute Journal is created with leading positive psychology research. The Greater Good Science Center at the University of California, Davis launched a multi-year project expanding the science and practice of gratitude. Here is what they found:
- Higher levels of positive emotion
- More joy, optimism, and happiness
- Feeling less lonely, and isolated
- Acting with more generosity and compassion
- Stronger immune systems
“The Five Minute Journal is one of the simplest ways that I have found to consistently ensure improving my well being and happiness. Both in terms of achievement and actual measurable, quantifiable results.”
