Gratitude List

Two weeks ago I started to jot down a fews things in my Bullet Journal every day that I was grateful for, from the day or in general. Wherever you look for information about mental health and how to improve it, gratitude always comes up as one of the main tools for feeling better.

I thought I wanted to share what I have been feeling grateful for during these past two weeks.

☼ Our new home, a new start

☼ Re-connecting with friends as often as I can through emails, WhatsApp and Instagram

☼ Putting on music and instantly feeling better

☼ A cool breeze on my face

☼ Taking a nap after lunch

☼ Managing situations I didn’t think I would be able to

☼ Getting a fridge to the kitchen (after a week of using a cool box and buying ice from the colmado two times a day!)

☼ The Swedish language, how it makes me feel safe

☼ Yoga, and how I know how to use it
