Intentional 7-Day Gratitude Journaling and Activities: A Qualitative Analysis
Gratitude journaling has emerged with compelling research showing that it enhances general health and well-being. We carried out a 7-day gratitude journaling exercise through social media, that involved encouraging participants to record what they were grateful for on a daily basis, and also by having them complete one gratitude-related activity every day. The objective of our study was to inculcate a sense of gratitude in participants. On the seventh day, a feedback form was sent to participants to gain feedback about their experience from the 7-days. 36 participants participated in our study, out of which 28 participants gave their feedback on the form. Participants reported that they slept better, showed more forgiveness towards others, were satisfied with the experience, and had let go of at least one issue in their life. Therefore, gratitude journaling is to be included as an active and staple part of our everyday lives.
