About This Grateful Now

Gratitude is a key player for physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing. Especially now in a world of constant change and uncertainty, seeing and appreciating the ‘small’ things in life will help you stay calm and centred. By writing down 3 things a day that you are grateful for, you become aware again of what is already there in abundance.

The ‘This Grateful Now’ Journal is purposefully designed to give you a ‘back to basics’ opportunity to create precious moments of peace and appreciation. By consciously taking the time to reflect on the good stuff in your daily life, you will start (re-)discovering more and more amazingness. Be accompanied by inspiring quotes from health and gratitude experts, writers, philosophers as well as the works of 14 international artists and their idea of gratitude. 5 essays explore the theme of gratitude in health, spirituality and culture.

This website brings you ongoing articles, interviews and other interesting features around the theme of gratitude. You can also share your own reasons to be grateful.

Let’s make this a movement – a chain reaction of gratefulness standing against ever increasing hostility, depression, anxiety, materialism… a universal energy of gratitude!
