Gratitude is more than just feel-good fluff. It serves a significant practical purpose, too. You can add a gratitude session into your daily routine, and Gratefuless is a free tool that helps you do just that. It reminds you to practice gratitude with a daily email assignment.

Though people in the US receive a text and international customers receive an email, it is fundamentally the same service. Once you sign up, the service does one simple thing: it emails you every day asking what you're grateful for. They explain:
After you sign up, we'll text you every day in the morning. You reply to that text with something you're grateful for. And once you have our number, you can reply anytime you're feeling grateful for something and we'll store it for you. You can always also log into your account and add comments there as well.
We only send SMS messages within the United States, however we do send daily gratitude emails for our international gratitude family. After logging in, click on Settings and turn on email notifications. Once you do, you'll receive a daily gratitude email. You can respond directly to that email and we'll store it for you.
Of course, a gratitude journal works, too. If you're anything like me, though, you keep up with it for a few weeks but then forget about it altogether. This tool also serves as a daily reminder, so you actually keep up with the habit.
