According to a study, those who made daily gratitude lists were shown to have significantly greater and lasting neural sensitivity and the act of making the list helped the participants be more conscious of the positive aspects of their lives. 

ER physician expert Dr. Travis Stork likens the task of daily list-making to a "wonderful gratitude muscle workout" for the brain. He notes how easy it is to feel overwhelmed in our busy lives, which may cause you to forget about all the wonderful and fulfilling parts of life.

The Doctors suggest simply writing down 3 things every day that you are grateful for and over the course of 6 months this daily task could help to improve your mood and anxiety levels. The grateful list could also easily be typed out on your phone in the notes section as well.
