5 Reasons to Keep a Gratitude Journal; Happy Thanksgiving Too!

5 Reasons to Keep a Gratitude Journal; Happy Thanksgiving Too!

JVM will be closing at 1 PM today for the holiday.

We will, however, have Mortgage Analysts “on-call” all day today as well as on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, as always.

We will not have anyone on-call tomorrow, Thanksgiving Day.

THE GRATITUDE “FAD” 😊

Every Thanksgiving we all get endless reminders to be grateful for pretty much everything – food, kids, dogs, living in America, running water, cold beer, sunny days, profitable years and you-name-it else.

This is on top of all the reminders we get during the rest of the year b/c the entire “gratitude thing” has almost become a fad.

But, it turns out there is a lot of science behind the fad and that there are tremendous benefits resulting from a “state of gratitude.”

This link from “Happify.com” (a name I would have relentlessly made fun of a few years ago) sets out 5 reasons why keeping a gratitude journal will change your life.

Even better, the blog links to numerous studies and other articles that explain why gratitude is so good for everyone.

Below are the five reasons why everyone should keep a “gratitude journal” but I highly recommend clicking the above link and reading the full article and its related links b/c it is all very convincing.

  1. It Increases Positivity
  2. It Improves Self-Esteem
  3. It Helps You Sleep Better
  4. It Makes You Happier
  5. You’ll Get More Creative

The other reason I think everyone should click the link is b/c I know from personal experience that it works.

I have been keeping a gratitude journal for several years and can readily attest to its many benefits.

So, go forth and be grateful! (You’ll feel a lot better)

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at JVM Lending!
