If you’re looking to improve your life, it could be as simple as taking pen to paper.
Studies have shown that the simple act of writing down what you’re grateful for can have numerous benefits, including better sleep, fewer symptoms of illness, and more happiness among both adults and children.
To get the most out of this practice, experts suggest focusing on quality over quantity, really reflecting on what you’re grateful and going into specifics rather than creating a laundry list of things. It’s also not necessary to try to do it daily; a couple of times a week is enough to reap the benefits.
