Ever since reading The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin a couple of years ago, I have been interested in the idea of increasing my happiness. So, I was excited to see this Instant Happy Journal by Karen Salmansohn on Blogging for Books. This is a journal, filled with 365 happiness prompters. These include quotes, writing prompts, research studies on happiness and more. While there are 365 prompts, this journal does not need to be used everyday, which I do not do! I keep this journal on my night stand and write in it every couple of days before going to bed. For me, this is a nice way for me to reflect on my day and go to bed feeling grateful…..and happier. Others may enjoy starting their day by writing in this journal. This is a small, square journal. There is enough space provided to write a small reflection. A separate journal may be needed for those who like to write lengthier entries. Salmansohn has a companion book to this journal Instant Happy, which was published in 2012. The book does not need to be read to enjoy this journal.
I think this would make a great holiday gift for those you know who like to journal. Everyone can use a little more happiness in their lives!
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review. However, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
