Instant Happy Journal 365 Days of Inspiration, Gratitude, and Joy By Karen Salmansohn

All of us want to be happy, and none of us purposely or knowingly focus on the negative. I think the problem lies in our fleshy nature wants happiness to be a “gimme”, not something we chose and work toward on a daily basis. This book is a great start in taking the step toward choosing what we focus on.
Being super busy, like everyone, and easily distracted by so many things shouting for my attention, I really like the way this book gives me something concrete to start each day. Don’t get me wrong, the book doesn’t tell you what to do to be happy, you are writing your own story on how to achieve that goal. It is super simple!
There is one page for each day of the year. At the top of the page is a quote, question, a scientific research tidbit, or a philosophical thought. After that it is all yours! The rest of the page is lined for you to journal what come to your heart and mind. You may even be prompted to “talk it out” with yourself and let go of something that is troubling you. There is even a place to write the date. I like this in case I happen to miss some days.
The book is compact but sturdy so you can take it with you and write anywhere and anytime. This is a great gift for anyone, but especially those facing hard times or those who love to journal. When you are done you have a keepsake book filled with memories and thoughts that bring you happiness!
