The Happy Heart Journal 365 Days of Happy
by Lindsay Rielly
About The Happy Heart Journal:
The book is designed to help tweens and teens embrace and honor their many emotions and feelings. The Happy Heart Journal aims to enhance self-acceptance, compassion, and emotional literacy in teens and young adults. The Journal also guides writers and readers into their heart centers, where they will find happiness, well-being, and personal transformation.
While written specifically with young people in mind, writer of any age can benefit from the daily exercises, which includes prompts like:
On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate your self-esteem?
Who is one of your closest friends, and what are 3 of his/her best qualities?
What is your favorite quality about yourself and why?
And what are 5 things you are most grateful for today?
My Thoughts on the Journal:
Love, love, love it! Being a teen or tween is hard enough, then add in the pressures of social media and you can have a mess on your hands. The Happy Heart Journal offers daily prompts to get your teen to examine their feelings. I don’t feel there is much space for that anymore when you are surrounded by so much technology. The simple prompts ask some tough questions that make you pause and think. It helps teens examine relationships, feelings, wants, and needs.
It truly is a tool to help improve your life. While the journal is aimed at helping teens and tweens, I feel anyone of any age could benefit from these prompts. Personally, I’m always on the hunt for happiness and personal transformation. Especially now through these times of COVID, I think our teens could use a boost exploring their emotional literacy. I have started journaling again and I find that helps me start my day by being more mindful with my intentions. This would make a wonderful gift for that special teen or tween in your life.
