Gratitude is one of the healthiest emotions, and you can consciously tap into it to manifest more abundance and your dream life. Practicing gratitude is a powerful Law of Attraction technique  that you can incorporate into your daily manifesting routine.

I have different ways of how I practice gratitude every day, e.g., with my gratitude list  – but one way became my absolute favorite in the last years: a gratitude jar.

What is a Gratitude Jar

I don’t care much about celebrating NYE. I have to admit, most of the time, I’m in bed by 10 or 11… maybe it’s because, as I get older, I appreciate waking up well-rested and fresh.

Or maybe it’s because I consciously set goals throughout the year instead of making New Year’s resolutions only once a year. And besides, I think there’s something to celebrate every day, not just at the end of the year.

Especially when you know how to leverage the power of the universal laws and your subconscious mind in order to manifest the life you love (click here to check out my bestselling manifestation book if you want to learn more.)

But I started a little habit a few years ago, and it’s become a little New Year’s tradition in our house.  A Gratitude Jar.

Every day, throughout the year, my husband Tom and I write down one thing that went especially well that day, one thing for which we are grateful. And at the end of the year, we open these notes and read them out loud together.

Our gratitude jar definitely became something very special because you can review again how the year really was.

And no matter how things go sometimes and how difficult a situation can be, if you focus on the “small” things that actually do go well, it helps you to deal with the more difficult things in life…

This annual reminder is very helpful in seeing the big picture. A POSITIVE big picture.

No matter if you start this new habit at the beginning of a new year, or sometime during the year (how about a monthly gratitude jar that you read through at the end of each month?) – this little habit can help you have a great year.

Because the more you focus on the good things in your life, the more of them you attract.

How to Use a Gratitude Jar in Your Daily Manifestation Routine

If you want to add more gratitude to your daily manifestation routine, starting a gratitude jar is a great idea.

All you need is a notepad, a pen, and some kind of container where you can keep the notes—for example, a Mason Jar. 

Every day you write down something you are thankful for that day, crumple the note (or roll it and fix it with a ribbon or some string), and throw it into the jar.

By the way, it doesn’t matter how big or small the thing is that you are thankful for. So don’t worry if you think you can’t find enough things to be thankful for throughout the year. It doesn’t always have to be the new house, the pay raise, or other great news…

Practicing gratitude is about signaling to your subconscious mind that your life is great and you want more of it.

The cool thing is that your subconscious mind can’t tell the difference between being happy about something small and being happy about something huge. It’s all about the emotion.

And it’s in your hands to make that emotion big regardless of the reason.

Extra Tips for Your Gratitude Jar

With this new habit of gratitude that you can incorporate into your daily manifestation routine, you can get really creative.

In case you plan this new gratitude practice together with your partner or the whole family, use different colored notes. Everyone who participates gets their own color.

And if you start this new habit all by yourself, you can also use different colors for different days or areas of your life, e.g., pink notes for your business and blue ones for your private life…
