The Gratitude Explorer Workbook by Kristi Nelson
Storey Publishing, LLC 2021
Thank you to Netgalley and Storey Publishing for the Advanced Copy! The Gratitude Explorer Workbook will be released on November 23rd, 2021.
A Network for Grateful Living, creators of the best-selling Everyday Gratitude and Wake Up Grateful present a distinctive workbook for readers who want to start a gratitude practice or integrate gratitude into their lives with greater intention and consistency. This interactive package acts as both a guide and a journal for recording thoughts and meditations. Dozens of writing prompts, guided meditations, and exercises for beginning and progressively deepening a daily gratitude practice are paired with quotations and space for writing and personalizing the book. The beautifully designed gift package includes bonus features in the back: 10 quotation postcards, mini-cards for keeping in a wallet or leaving for others, conversation starters, gold star stickers and reusable affirmation stickers, as well as die-cut bookmarks for each section of the book.
I really enjoyed this book. It’s a fantastic introduction to gratitude practice and I loved the exercises, quotes, and art that was included.
Every time I’ve been in the hospital, or intensive therapy, expressing our gratitude has played a part in our treatment. Of course there’s therapy and medication management as well, but patients were encouraged to either say or write what we are grateful for. And when you’re in a place mentally where hospitalization or intensive therapy is necessary, finding and expressing is both extremely difficult (sometimes it feels impossible!), but also vital for healing.
I also try to practice gratitude every day. Part of my morning routine is writing three things that I’m grateful, and I try to do it again before going to bed.
This book definitely supplemented my existing practice, and helped me think outside the box in terms of all that I have to be grateful for!
