best gratitude journals 2022

When life is making you feel sad and unmotivated, it can be helpful to remember the things we have, rather than what we don't have.

The act of gratitude essentially involves taking time to remember what we're grateful for and allowing ourselves to feel happy they exist.

It can be anything from Disney+, red wine or that pal who's always got your back in a crisis.

Oh and the fact you're currently reading heatworld on an electronic device obviously counts, too.

So, why bother with all this gratitude lark?

Grateful people sleep better, form healthier relationships and are happier, according to Forbes.

And anything that encourages us to focus on the positive aspects of life sounds bloody brilliant to us.

From hardcore journals that will take ages to perfect (ideal for anyone who has time to kill, ha) to the low maintenance that do the task in hand, here are the very best gratitude journals for 2022...

Whilst you're doing some self-care shopping why not add an acupressure mat to your basket?

Not only are they a great excuse to have a lie down and take some time for yourself, they have also been proven to help with stress, anxiety, muscle tension, or chronic pain.

Some people even report benefits for cellulite reduction and pain relief for things like menstruation and headaches.

All you have to do is simply lie on your mat, clothed or with bare skin (depending on your preference), and wait for the mat to work its magic. Easy.
