Piggybacking off of Ace’s post, I decided to challenge you all to 7 days of gratitude journaling. Journaling has a positive impact on physical well-being, including reducing stress and increasing emotional intelligence, memory and comprehension. It can be whatever you want it to be. Draw a picture, cut words out of magazine, do whatever creative thing you like!
Grab your favorite journal or the handy printable I created below and get journaling. If you use any of these prompts, snap a picture and tag us (@palmsinatl).

“Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity…it makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” Melody Beattie
