World Gratitude Day celebrated with new journal resource

21 September marks World Gratitude Day – and, to mark the occasion, we’re delighted to share our brand new Gratitude Journal.

Whether it’s being thankful for being able to enjoy a catch-up with a friend, to take time to yourself to relax, or even to appreciate feeling well on a particular day, finding one thing – however small - that gives us a positive boost is really important.

Debbie van Tonder of St Patrick’s Mental Health Services tells us there is widespread evidence that saying “thank you” contributes to positive mental health and increases our sense of connection with the world.
