Count Your Blessings

List the things you're thankful for, and improve positive emotions‍

Share this activity


We all feel down or blue from time to time, which can make it difficult to appreciate what's going well. For the next two weeks, spend a few minutes at the end of each day writing down five things you're thankful for.

These can be events that occurred during the day, like a stranger letting you go first in line. Or they might be bigger moments of gratitude, like a sibling who's been supportive over many years. You might find that some things appear on the list multiple times — that's okay!


Research has shown that keeping a list of gratitude improves positive emotions, well-being, and sleep in as little as two weeks.
