The Gratitude Box
by Bonnidette (site manager)
Happy Saturday my friends. Today I want to introduce you to something called the gratitude box. So, what is it and what is it used for?
The gratitude box is a cool little tool I absolutely love. What it is, is a simple box or jar if you prefer (I use a jar)and every time you feel especially grateful for something you jot it down on a small piece of paper including the days date on it. I like to keep one at home and one at the office.
Then when your having a particularly hard day or ruff day you simply pull out a handful of your gratitude papers from the box or jar and read them to yourself.
This really is a fantastic way to make sure you have a little pick me up on those days you would otherwise go mopping through your day in that pour me induced haze.
Putting the date on these little entries is very important because it will tye that piece of gratitude to that particular day which can help boost the memory of that day and the gratitude you were feeling the day you wrote it.
If any of you keep a gratitude box or a gratitude jar I'd love to here how you use it and what you like about it. If you have never used a gratitude jar or box give it a try and come back here and tell us what your experience with it was.
Have a day and I will see you tomorrow.
