“When you are thankful for what you have, you often feel happier, more satisfied, and less stressed.” So states the introduction for Count Your Rainbows. And it’s the basic philosophy of both of these new books. Each suggests you take time to find things in your life that you are grateful for and write them down. It sounds simple, but so many of us tend to focus on negative aspects of our lives. Consider them “gratitude prompters.”
My Daily Gratitude Journal featuring beautiful mandala illustrations by bestselling coloring book artist “Hello Angel,” and “inspires readers to focus on the positive things in life.” My Daily Gratitude Journal suggests you note how much sleep you’re getting and if it’s enough. Also suggested is to note the amount of “screen time” you are experiencing and if it’s too much. Count Your Rainbows urges you, among other things, to look outside your own life. How readily available is clean water around the world? We tend to take for granted the clean water coming out of our faucets.
