Another important part of self-esteem is to get to know yourself. Through writing a daily journal you can get objectivity and therefore is one way of acknowledging what is working and what your already are doing to get closer to who you are and where you want to be.
One way of accomplishing this is to include in your diary a gratitude perspective. Try every day you write journal to include 3 things you are grateful for. This can help you in addition to searching for thing to be grateful for also help you reflect on your thoughts and feelings which will help you to discover and understand yourself.
To keep writing about what makes you grateful keeps you looking for the traces of what is working for you already and the moments of joy you already have. This will in turn help you colour your presence with a positive and nourishing light. It will also help you understand that you are not a single event: when something goes wrong – that is just an incident rather than a representation of you.
There are many positive outcomes of a gratitude diary such as increased wellbeing, improved relationships, more optimism, as well as more meaning in daily life.
Hence the tip of this week: Record at least five things you are grateful for each day “Today, I am grateful for…”, aiming for one new thing to be grateful for each day, and read through old entries to see how far you have come since you began. End with something that you have not yet expressed your gratitude for, such as something you may have taken for granted, like good general health. #selfesteemexercise #selfcompassion
