Therapy Thursday # 17: How to Feel Like Your Life Is Not a Boundless Hell Hole

TOPIC: Gratitude Journals 

WHEN TO USE: When you feel like your life is a spiraling centrifuge of disappointment. When you feel like you have nothing good going on or nothing to live for. 

HOW TO USE (With Examples): Super simple. Before you go to bed, when you wake up, or whenever tickles your tahini, write down at least three things you are grateful for. It can be big or small, general or relative to your day. For example, tonight I would write down, 'I am grateful for my boyfriend, my hair, and the energy I have to blog tonight.' 

WHY IT'S LEGIT: By paying attentions to all the good things you have in your life, you will begin to shift your focus from the negative aspects of your life to the positive. A way to see the glass half full again.
