Long time journal writers often refer to the page as a ‘friend’ or ‘confidante’. Below, you will find a growing library of companion workbooks for your Positive Journal practice – each designed to be that friend. They have been carefully created to offer a helpful pathway into this practice including fun, structured-yet-broad exercises for you to explore in your own way.

Just like a chat with a good listener, a Positive Journal is a space for compassionate, wholehearted regard for all that we feel. This is not about quashing or ignoring the tough stuff. This practice is a celebration of the wonderfully diverse nature of emotional life and in which we can choose to be guided (gently) by our most life-affirming emotions.

You can download and fill in the guides as printable workbooks, or simply use them on your phone alongside a journal. You decide.

Happy writing!
