How it works

In order to survive, humans tend to focus on the negative things in life. This might have been useful in the early stages of our development, but it’s not really serving us well today.

When you regularly point out what you're grateful for, whether by thinking about it or writing it down, your brain starts to focus on the good stuff more often. This habit makes you feel more fulfilled and positive. It lets your brain know that there are more good things happening to you.

This process leads to your subconscious mind making some tweaks to your behavior and your inner dialogue. And then, you start attracting more good things by taking action that is more likely to produce positive results.

This transformation happens on a deep level that you don’t really notice, but sooner or later you start seeing the results. People start looking at you differently. You become less stressed and more open to trying new stuff. You notice that the things you hated before at your job or at home don’t bother you anymore. You start to feel lucky.

At the end of the day, every situation, environment, or person can be looked at from many angles. It’s up to us to learn how to see the sides that serve us better.

By having a dedicated journal for your habit, it helps you enter a new mind space when you write, thus speeding up the process of rewiring your brain.
