A Simple Journal Method to Change Your Entire Outlook on Life (Updated)

Sometimes the simplest thing can have a huge impact. This is a method I have used that has had a big impact personally. Maybe it will do the same for you.

The most spiritual thing that you may do today is pull out a notepad and pen and put it by your bed. This process should not take a long time, maybe a couple minutes. I simply:

1. Write the date

2. Write 5 things I am thankful for from that day

3. Close the book

Sometimes at the end of the day I am surprised what things I will come up with that I have forgotten. Although I don’t do this most nights because I want to cut back on my media right before bed (it can effect your sleep). Another option is to simply email yourself the 5 things at the end of the night. Then in the morning when you get up you can put it in a folder. Or you could use Evernote or some other system. The key is to make it simple and something that you will actually do. I have a whole chapter on this and a lot of other prayer ideas like it in Enjoying Prayer.

This video is a remake of a video that I did a few years ago. It was by chance that I am wearing the same shirt. :-)

You can watch that here.
