Gratitude Journal Template: My ‘Happy’ Thanksgiving Gift For You

Happy Thanksgiving To All My American Friends And Readers!

I’d like to offer you a little gift that seems just right for a day of giving thanks.

It’s an interactive Gratitude Journal Template: a downloadable, single-page PDF for listing all the things you’re grateful for – or at least 40 of them.

The cool thing is that just by using this list, you’re more likely to have a happy Thanksgiving, because happiness is related to gratitude.

How? Well, psychologists have found many ways that thankfulness boosts contentment, including:

  • Writing about positive events (1)
  • Counting blessings (2)
  • Noting three good things each day (3).

You can do any or all of these by typing into this template and saving it to your computer, or printing out and writing. Either way it’s re-usable, so you can use it every day or every week to keep those grateful feelings flowing – and the happiness happening.

May your day be happy and your pumpkin pie plentiful!

    So many of us have been thinking about how to generate more contentment. I have been enjoying the Gratitude Journal Template. I appreciate how simple it is, yet so clever.

    I wasn’t exactly sure what I should be thankful for until I read C.J. Good’s book, “Little gifts of sustainable contentment.” It challenged me to step outside the daily onslaught of mainstream thinking, my own ego, and what I do habitually so I could grasp the things in life that I’m truly grateful for: life, love, liberty, freedom to (and freedom from), community, and health. I love this book! It gives me real alternatives and insights to help me understand what truly matters on my own personal journey.

    This book together with the Gratitude Journal Template really triggered a shift in my consciousness. Thank you for making it available!
