Gratitude journal
three good things

Jun 17, 2019

The common cold

Grateful to the makers of such medicines as Echinaforce, Sudafed and Lemsip for trying to help with the common cold.   Not sure really how much good they do, but at least they are trying. 

Thanks to Suzie, the Transport Officer at Ampleforth, for kindly putting me in touch with the right people to arrange a coach to take us to Stansted in July.  Normally one 8-seater is enough but this year we seem to have many more, for which we should be grateful. However, moving into the realms of big coaches is a bit beyond my pay grade, so Suzie’s expertise is welcome.

Grateful to the Malton train for being three minutes late, which meant that Alex, on his way to London via York for the Fleetwood Mac concert, actually caught his train in spite of leaving everything to the last minute.

A Gratitude Journal is just a simple way of
recording and appreciating the good things in life.

Research shows that keeping a gratitude journal leads to
higher levels of alertness, happiness and positive emotions as well as
a stronger immune system, lower blood pressure and better sleep.
