Gratitude Journal? Why?
Just A Few Minutes a Day.
Gratitude can be a pretty hard habit to build. The world isn't really this cheery fairytale where everything is fair and just, is it?
Sometimes we're just too busy or distracted or just plain tired and sad and stressed to remember. Gratitudely will remind you via SMS.
SMS was specifically chosen for reminders because of its 98% open rate.
By default, you will receive an SMS reminder every night at about 9 PM, according to your timezone. Of course, the reminder time can be changed.
To reap the benefits, gratitude journaling requires you to be consistent. Gratitudely provides a daily totals chart to provide a sense of momentum.
Short & Simple.
The purpose of Gratitudely is to train the brain to notice and focus on the positives, small or big. It's not about your writing prowess.
There will be a time where you just can't think of anything. It happens to everyone. Simply click/tap the Gratitude Ideas button.
The Gratitude Ideas are simple, randomly-picked prompts, such as:
- Something good about today's weather.
- What is one food you are grateful for?
- One tool you can't live without.
- A small win that you accomplished in the past 24 hours.
- What do you have now that you didn't have 5 years ago?
There is no need to channel the spirit of Shakespeare every night. Just short bullet-point sentences about, say, good moments and small wins.
Including more specific details would be great, but not necessary.
Hey, if you're feeling a little extra, you can write something longer. Just make sure to keep it under 250 characters (including hashtags).
Organize. Analyze. Revisit.
You're already familiar with the concept of #hashtags, right?
Yes, like Twitter and Instagram. They're your private hashtags, however - other users have their own. They can't see or use yours, and vice versa.
When adding an entry, you will be asked to choose categories.
There are 8 categories:
- Comforts & Needs
- Health & Fitness
- Memories & Experiences
- Nature & Animals
- Small Wins & Accomplishments
- Work & Business
Why, you ask? It's for your analytics. Below is a category distribution pie chart.
And here's an example of the #hashtag chart. Both are available from the beginning. More charts after you have enough entries.
With these, you can do some self-introspection. The whats and the hows and the whys are up to you. Find patterns, and ask yourself questions.
Anytime later, you can search for specific #hashtags (or category, words, date etc) in the Entries page.
An export-to-spreadsheet function will be available soon!
Try it risk-free. It's for your well-being, after all.
That's like, what, two lattes?
