Journaling Gratitude for Wellbeing & Mental Health

By Geoff Griffiths @mmatraining1980

Wee video I made:


Choose 3 things that you’re grateful for each day, and express why and how happy it makes you feel.

For example:
“It is awesome that I don’t have to pay for parking at work, this saves me £100 a month compared to my old job. And I don’t have to walk for from where I’ve parked now”

You could also take a specific picture and share on social media.

Recall the Positives

When you get home from work, try and recall 2 things that went well during the day. This helps you to focus on good, rather than negative things.

Imagine Your Best Possible Self

“Think about your life in the future.

Imagine that everything has gone as well as it possibly could. You have worked hard and succeeded at accomplishing all of your life goals.

Think of this as the realization of all of your life dreams. Now, write about what you imagined.”


This helps me feel generally more optimistic.
