23 Fantastic Daily Gratitude Journal Prompts
Today we are doing something a little bit different. We aren’t talking about Bullet Journaling; we are talking about expressing your gratitude.
So prepare to get the most out of this practice with this post and 15 amazing gratitude prompts.
A gratitude journal or gratitude log, if you’re planning to add it to your Bullet Journal, is a very simple practice of daily writing down small good things in your life.
It sounds pretty simple and really takes just a few minutes a day to do it, but the effects really are so significant.
Writing daily gratitudes will help you to see the world in a better light and to notice and appreciate more amazing people around you.
It’s a great tool to improve your mental health, your relationships, and your self-esteem. (pss, if you’re interested in more, check my post with Mental Health Bullet Journal Ideas)
Daily gratitude will help you to become a happier, more mindful, and more present person.

23 Gratitude Journal Prompts
I’ve been doing daily gratitude for a very long time already, but it took me a while to figure it out.
So below are some prompts that will help you get started and find your own way to do your daily gratitude.
1. Happy Memory Of The Day
What was something that made you happy today? What made you smile? Why did I make you feel that way? No matter how small, think about it.
2. Something You’re Grateful For That You Didn’t Have Last Year
This of something amazing you have in your life now that you didn’t have before. What is it? What did you do to make it happen? How does it make you feel?
Take a minute to reflect on that and give yourself a pat for making it happen.
3. Your Favorite Person
Think about your favorite person in the world. Why do you feel that way? What are some qualities you like in them?
This simple exercise will help remind you of the amazing people that surround you and be more mindful and appreciative of your relationships.
4. Something You Love About Where You Live
Your country, your state, your city, or maybe just about your neighborhood.
5. Old Photos
So open your phone, scroll through your photo albums, and find one picture. Write down why this was important, why this moment was special, and how did it make you feel? Why are you grateful for this photo?
6. Act Of Kindness From Another
Sit and think of an act of kindness somebody did for you. It can be a family member or a friend, but it also might be just a random stranger on the subway.
And don’t just think of anything huge, something simple like giving you a smile or allowing you to pass before them.
7. Something You Love About Your Job | Career
It might seem daunting and tiring sometimes, but there must be some things you love about what you do.
8. 3 Things | People That Make Your Home Feel Special
No place like home; show some gratitude for the things and people who make it a special place.
9. Your Favorite Piece Of Art
What is your favorite artwork? Write down why you love it and how it makes you feel.
10. Your Favorite Song
Think of your favorite song. Why do you like it so much? How does it make you feel? What does it make you think about?
Alternatively, you can also create a playlist Bullet Journal spread, if you have a lot of musing you’re loving these days.
11. 3 Things You’re Grateful For Today
Pretty simple – write down 3 things that you’re grateful for today.
This really can be anything, from sunny weather to that delicious cupcake you had for a coffee break. It doesn’t matter how small.

I started a gratitude log after I was really sick in 2019 – I could have died, actually. After that, I realized how thankful I was for a lot of things in my life. For some reason or another, I never thought much about things like that so I decided to change that. Since then, I sit down every night and think of one thing I am thankful for -just like you say, Masha, no matter how small it may be. It can be something I accomplished at work, my daily workout routine, sunshine during the day or something my husband did for or with me. :-)
I’m so happy to hear you overcame that illness, hope everything is ok now with your health. Yes gratitude log is really such a powerful tool.
