30 Journal Prompts for Gratitude



Woman writing in gratitude journal


I've put together 30 Journal Prompts for Gratitude to encourage you to pause, truly admire and become aware of all the positives in your life already. Celebrate and honour where you are, what you have and all that surrounds you. Sometimes we're caught up in the busy circle of life forgetting to pause and acknowledge the little details, but by doing so we open our hearts and our daily lives to experience pure happiness and joy. Whether you use one journal prompt a day for a month, or answer all of them in a day, it's completely up to you. I'm simply excited you'll be practicing gratitude. Happy Journaling!


Gratitude can have a positive impact on every aspect of your life. It's taking the time to acknowledge your appreciation of people, acts of kindness and experiences. When we practice thankfulness it encourages a positive mindset, resilience and greater sense of happiness. A few benefits of gratitude are:

  • Improves mental/physical health and relationships
  • Decreases stress and anxiety
  • Increases self-esteem
  • And so much more!

We recommend visiting Happier Human for more gratitude information!


Everyone acknowledges and shows gratitude differently, so I highly recommend trying a few things out to see what works best for you. To encourage gratitude in your life here are a few things you could try today:

  • Keep a daily gratitude journal
  • Say thank you as often as you can
  • Write a Thank-You note to someone you truly appreciate
  • Take a friend for tea or bake them a treat

Anyway you can show your appreciation for others is a great way to spread kindness. It will positively impact others and have an incredible ripple effect onto the world.
