Focus on the doughnut, not the hole

Focus on the doughnut, not the hole

Who here writes a gratitude list, or keeps a gratitude journal?

Keeping a gratitude journal has so many benefits for your mental and emotional well-being. By writing down the things you’re grateful for, you focus on the positive aspects of your life, which can help you feel more positive and optimistic.

It’s also been proven to reduce stress and boost your self-esteem.

I write three things I’m grateful for in my journal every morning. This morning I wrote: “I don’t feel like writing a gratitude list today, which is exactly why I must.” So I did. And now I feel a little bit better than I did 10 minutes ago.

Try it. Let me know how it goes.

Remember to focus on the doughnut, not the hole.

How to silence the inner critic. Focus on the doughnut, not the hole.

Taking a few minutes every morning to reflect on what you’re grateful for, will help you start your day with a positive mindset, and set the tone for a great day ahead.

Using a journal in the evening to reflect on what you learned and what you’re thankful for will help you end the day optimistically, and set you up for better sleep.

I’ve been looking for the right journal to practice both my morning gratitude and my evening reflection, with writing prompts.

But I couldn’t find one. So I made one. And now it’s available on Amazon. I know, MERCH!! I made a thing, and for only £5.99 it can be yours. 

You’ll be supporting your wellbeing, and supporting a small business owner (by which I mean I have a small business – but also, I’m only 5’2″). I’d be hugely grateful if you could write a review, or post about it on social media, to help it come up in more searches.

Thank you. Enjoy!
