Did you know there's an app specifically designed to make you happy? Gratitude Journey is a gratitude journal app for your Apple device (iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch). Available on the Apple App Store for only $0.99.
What is a gratitude journal? Each day you wake up and list a short entry about the things in your life that you are grateful for: the people that enrich your life, the places you love, the foods you adore... anything that makes you smile. After keeping a gratitude journal for just a few days you notice your mood shift as gratitude becomes your attitude. You'll notice that your days are brighter as you're constantly on the look out for things you appreciate.
Gratitude journals and lists have been used for years as a potent therapy. It's been shown to have tremendous effects on people with depression, in recovery, or dealing with illness. Psychology professor at UC Davis, Dr. Robert Emmons conducted an experiment and found that those who kept a gratitude journal showed improved mood, more internal drive, better health, and we're openly appreciated by their family and friends. This practice works!
