Happiness research suggests that focusing on what we're grateful for leads to a more positive outlook on life, which leads, of course, to greater happiness and resilience. This gratitude journal helps you establish a habit -- a habit of placing your attention on what makes you grateful rather than on what ticks you off. It offers a month's worth of templates to capture your daily thoughts with a minimum of effort and time -- perfect if you have a busy life yet still want to reflect on your days and enhance your life. Give one as a gift and keep one for yourself. Develop the gratitude habit.
I'm a personal coach who helps clients figure out not only who they are but what they value, where they want to go, and what they need to do to get there. As a certified facilitator of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), the Strength Deployment Inventory (SDI), and the Pearson-Marr Archetype Inventory (PMAI), I lead a variety of personal and team development sessions using these instruments. Needless to say, I do a lot of self-study. My writing emerges from these kinds of activities, not to mention from the fact that I feel driven to create. In addition to my blog, at pivot-coaching.com, I enjoy writing memoir and creative non-fiction.
