Gratitude Journal | Mukha Yoga

I used to dread it every year. That moment during Thanksgiving dinner when someone inevitably suggests that we go around the table and say what we’re grateful for. While my heart was always in the right place, my words seemed to fail me. I would do my best to come up with something nice to say about everyone at the table, but it always seemed to turn into more of an ode to whichever food I liked best on my plate. My family smiled and nodded along, but I always felt I wasn’t exactly getting the whole gratitude thing right.

As an adult, I definitely seem to have a better grasp on giving thanks, due in part to my journaling practice. The week before Thanksgiving, I take inventory of all the elements of my life and the people in it that I love the most. While I usually tend to write freeform, having prompts can be a great way to get started if the empty page feels overwhelming. Taking the time to write out your gratitude in advance will assure you’re ready to go when your moment comes to speak your heart during Thanksgiving dinner.

We’ve prepared eight prompts to get you started and guide your journaling practice this Thanksgiving.

  1. It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without…
  2. What smells and sounds do you love the most during Thanksgiving?
  3. Write out 3 unique qualities about each of your family members that you appreciate.
  4. What is something that you are thankful for this year that wasn’t part of your life last year?
  5. What have you learned this year that you are thankful for?
  6. Describe in detail an event from the past year that you’re grateful for.
  7. When do you feel most Thankful in your day to day life?
  8. What are 3 ways you can show love to those around you?

Try kicking off your journaling session with a guided meditation that takes you on a gratitude journey through your chakras to foster inner peace.
