I have been in a bit of a funk lately. I’m not exactly sure why I feel this way, and the best way I can describe the feelings are ‘low energy’, ‘less motivated’, and ‘plain’. I fully believe that gratitude and thankfulness are key to living a joyful and peace-filled life. In fact, according to Shawn Achor, psychologist and CEO of Good Think Inc., “The brain at positive is 31% more productive than at negative, neutral or stressed.”
Therefore, I’ve decided to do a round up of gratitude logs for bujoing! I enjoy looking back at my gratitude logs and seeing all the amazing things that I experience on a day-to-day basis. Here are the two gratitude logs that I have put in my bujo so far. (and beside each is the inspiration for my pages!)
If you’re new to bullet journaling and you need to back up a bit to find out what it’s all about,
visit my post Why Bullet Journal?
In it I concisely explain the concept of a ‘bujo’ and provide tons of links to more inspiration.
Now for the round up…
This simple list will be great for all those traditionalists who like to stick to the Ryder Carroll style of bullet journaling.
I like how she lists two things each day (most bujo spreads only list one item a day), because according to Project Happiness, “it only takes 21 days of writing down three things you are grateful for every day to begin reaping the benefits”.
This monthly spread leaves even more room for writing out what you are grateful!
Although this is in another language, I LOVE IT. Not only would this page be practical in moments of stress and despair, but I love the artistic aspect of a page filled to the brim with beautiful, positive words.
This page from Boho Berry is another one-time set up page. As you can see, it puts a different spin on showing gratitude by incorporating doodles. Honestly, who doesn’t feel happy seeing cute little birdies and butterflies?
I’ve seen physical Happiness Jars on Pinterest, but this makes the concept 2D by incorporating it in the bujo. If you’re looking for a cutesy-style spread that’s still relatively simple, here ya go!
That’s not all I’ve got for you today though. Embellishing pages with quotes is one of my new favorite things… so here are some quotes on gratitude as well. Enjoy!
Do you have a gratitude log that you’re in love with? Or do you have a great quote on gratitude and thankfulness? I want to hear from you – so please share in the comments.
