The Gratitude Journal is designed for children and adults. The Journal is used to:

  • Record things you are grateful for
  • Plan service activities at home and in the community
  • Plan acts of kindness
  • Reflect on positives from your day

Using brain scans a number of scientists have shown that reflecting on the positive things – rather than dwelling on the negative things that happen – can actually have a big effect on how your brain works on the inside. Their studies show that when people spend time reflecting or meditating on a positive experience, their brains actually start opening new pathways and re-wiring themselves. Sounds unbelievable right?

Well it’s true. Regular positive reflection can physically change the way your brain works and can over time lower stress, help you sleep better, improve your health and help turn depression and anxiety around.
