On the heels of Karen Salmansohn’s wildly popular gift book Instant Happy comes this happiness journal, with daily prompts to help you think about and apply happiness wisdom to your own life. Each page features a specific intention, inspiring quote, surprising scientific fact, or thought-provoking question to ponder. When you approach your day with Salmansohn’s “happiness prompters” in mind, you amp up your ability to notice (and create!) many more joyous moments in your day. But that’s just half of what it takes to live a supremely happy life. This journal teaches the top two habits of happy people: to naturally set their intention to enjoy a happy day, then end the day reflecting on what made them happy. When you end your day writing about what went right, you further strengthen your happiness mindset. With fill-in dates so that you can write and reflect at your own pace, this little journal features a graphic design and fresh attitude perfect for today’s modern happiness-seeker. (Goodreads)
This is a super cute inspirational journal with prompts for writing every day for a year. If you love journals or writing prompts in general then you’re sure to love this one. The bright polka dot cover design instantly brings a smile to your face. The compact size makes it easy to tote around in your backpack, tote, or purse. The cover, although paperback is more sturdy than typical paperback journals. I can see this one standing the test of time. Each page has a space to write the date so you can easily choose to use it linear or skip around. Either way, there’s a ribbon bookmark to mark your page. The prompts range from inspirational quotes, writing prompts, questions, list ideas, etc. Not only would it make a great gift but you’re gonna want to pick up one for yourself as well. I rate Instant Happy Journal 4 happy stars.
