What is a Gratitude Journal & a Free Printable

One of my favorite layouts in my bullet journal is my gratitude log. I know that I’m calmer and more centered since I started recording these little things that I am grateful for everyday and its been such a help to me that I wanted to give you one too!

Sometimes its easy to get caught up in our everyday lives and forget the good things. A gratitude journal helps you focus less on the negative things in your life and more on the the things that bring you happiness. I consider myself a “glass half full” kinda girl but this was pretty hard at first and I had to look for the things I was grateful for everyday. Now, they seem so obvious to me that I wish there was room to write a couple more everyday.

This is my April gratitude log in my bullet journal, I was very careful with the handwriting on this one and used a pencil first to make sure I got it just right before using a marker. My hands can be super shaky sometimes and it’s hard to get straight lines, but this came out pretty good…if I do say so myself 😉

So, do you think you would like to add a gratitude log to your planner? I love having it with my calendar & daily to-do lists and it’s even better that I don’t have to carry an extra notebook with me just for that reason.

This printable is almost identical to my bullet journal layout except it’s a little larger. There are 31 rows enabling you to use it for any month, all you have to do is to add it to your daily planner and get started.

  1. Maria, what an awesome idea to write something that you’re grateful for everyday! I’m sure looking over the year of the gratitude journal, it’s probably very uplifting and encouraging to see all the good things. Thanks so much for sharing here at Sweet Inspiration!

    • Thanks Keri, it is very cool to look back on the month and see what I was grateful for every day. I’m really looking forward to reflecting on the year.

    • That’s awesome! Starting a gratitude journal is one of the best things I’ve ever done and I’m so happy you found your keys.

  2. I actually have been bullet journaling recently, but I’d never though to add this – will have to do it for next month’s spread!

  3. What a beautiful idea, Maria!
    Thank you for sharing this week at Brag About It link party on VMG206 (Mondays at Midnight).

    • Awe, that’s so sweet Tanya! I was changing back and forth between dailies and a weekly layout but I think I’ve finally figured out what works best and I’ve been sticking with it pretty good lately. My best advice it to keep trying different things until you find what works for you. Thanks for the pin!

  5. Having a gratitude log is a great idea! I know when I express my thanks to God for all that I have, I automatically feel happier. Not only that, but I also immediately think of more things to be grateful for! You did a great job on it. 🙂

    • That’s an awesome idea! I hope they enjoy their journals and will want to continue using them throughout the year. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful evening!
