Gratitude Journaling in Menorca

Gratitude Journaling in Menorca

Your exploration of the lesser-known island of Menorca coupled with your exploration of new ways to move in your Menorcan movement practice is designed to spark motivation and inspiration and reconnect you with movement. Through mindful reflection and expression of gratitude, you’ll cultivate a deeper sense of appreciation for this exploration and notice if your gratitude can compound this to infuse your experience with more positivity and joy. Let the act of journaling become a nourishing ritual, guiding you towards greater mindfulness, contentment, and inner peace throughout your Menorcan retreat journey.

Step 1: Create a new routine

Plan your 10 days of gratitude and workouts. Put aside 3 minutes every morning for the week and designate a new note in your phone or a journal to record your gratitude. Then plan your workouts for the week and set aside 3 minutes at the end of your workouts or 3 minutes at night in bed for your days off Body Holiday workouts. Put these times into your phone as reminders, to prompt you throughout your new routine.

Step 2: Begin with awareness

On your first morning of your gratitude routine, start with deep breaths with your eyes closed to really check in with yourself, then write a paragraph about how you are feeling. Take note of both physical, mental and emotional feelings.

Step 3: Notice Gratitude

Next, write the date, then the title “Three Blessings.” Under this, write one thing you are grateful for in your life, then at least a sentence about why and take the time to connect with how this makes you feel. Let this feeling guide you throughout the day.

Step 4: Closing gratitude

At the end of your movement practice or at the end of your day on your days off, add two more things you are grateful for under the three blessings heading from the day along with sentences about why. Do you notice anything different about the way you feel after your workout compared to before on your days doing Body Holiday? Can you make one gratitude blessing about something you are grateful for within yourself? Reflect on why all three blessings are meaningful to you and how it has enriched your life or brought you happiness.

Step 5: Repeat Daily

Repeat steps 3 &4 for 10 days.

Step 6: Reflect on the Positive Impact

Take a moment after your 10th day of gratitude journaling to stop and go back to your deep breaths. Notice how you feel physically, mentally and emotionally again and write a paragraph on it. After this, go back to the paragraph you wrote on the first day, what do you notice has changed? Has anything shifted for you? Write these changes down. Notice, has this routine become a habit yet? Is there parts of it you would like to continue past the 10 days?

Step 6: Express Your Gratitude

Take the time to read through your ten days of gratitude, if you feel comfortable, consider sharing your gratitude journaling experiences with a trusted friend, family member, or perhaps someone who came up in your 3 gratitude blessings. Sharing your blessings can deepen your connections with others and amplify the positive impact of gratitude in your life. Could you share your findings about yourself with them also?

Step 7: Close with Gratitude

Close your journaling session with a final expression of gratitude for the blessings in your life. Take a moment to thank yourself for taking the time to cultivate positivity and appreciation through this practice.


Remember, gratitude journaling is a personal practice, so feel free to adapt it to suit your preferences and needs. The key is to approach it with an open heart and a willingness to embrace the mindset of noticing the abundance of blessings that surround you each day.
