I started the Instant Happy Journal at the very start of 2016. It was a part of my whole “new year, new me” mantra. I’ll be honest, there were days that I forgot to journal (I have never been really good at the whole journaling thing. This blog is sort of my journal, and you’ll notice I don’t post every day and sometimes miss details.)
I have to say though, I really loved this book. It got me more in the habit of spending a few minutes each night reflecting on my day. It changed my sometimes sour mood into peaceful, reflective, and content. Sometimes things that day hadn’t really gone my way, and there were even sections of the journal that asked me to reflect on the bad things, and how they were really good things in disguise. Sometimes this was hard, but really the whole idea is so wonderful. If you’re looking to do some more reflecting, introspection, journaling, and filling your days with more gratitude and joy, I would 100% recommend this book. It’s inexpensive, but so rewarding. It really helped me look at my life in a new way, and I have enjoyed every second.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
