Summary of the Book:

The interactive and beautifully designed Self Care journal guides you through the personal journey of building boundaries and reclaiming the things that make you happy.

Being happy and fulfilled should be simple, but in our loud and messy world it can be difficult to find our roots. Through self care, you can ground yourself and reverse the negative effects that stress and the hectic nature of life have on the body while also reaching for your higher self. The Self Care journal works to help you in this goal in three interactive ways:
Habit and mood trackers guide you through the physical ways stress can manifest in the body
Thoughtful journal prompts and exercises help you dream up and visualize the best version of your life
Insightful journal prompts show you how to carve out time for yourself and get to know yourself even better than you already do
The writing prompts help you work through the common issues that plague our general well-being, while the health and fitness trackers of various shapes and sizes help illuminate any trends in mood based on your physical wellness. The journal is laid out intuitively, but you can hop around the different areas as you see fit.

By tracking the things that bring us joy and bringing more of them into the fold, we can find a lifelong happiness that doesn’t involve chasing the marketed version of happiness we see everywhere, but rather by finding gratitude in the minor moments of joy in our lives.

The Everyday Inspiration Journals series has a guided journal for every self-improvement journey. Whatever your personal goal, whether it is to incorporate more positivity into your life, or to slow down and find calm, or to hone your spell-building craft, or something else, you will find in this series an elegant journal in which you can record your thoughts, aspirations, and progress. With a simple, easy-to-follow structure, each journal is filled with powerful prompts and helpful trackers to illuminate your way.

Other titles in this series include:  Be Happy: A Journal, Beautifully Brave Journal, Everyday Calm: A Journal, Find Your Mantra, Finding Gratitude : A Journal, and Spellcraft

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I got this book because I wanted to find more ways to put myself first and take care of my mental health. I have been used to putting myself last and taking care of everyone else. Now that I have started saying no and doing things for myself I have noticed that this makes people angry because they are used to getting what they want from me and now that I am doing more for myself. They seem to think I am doing this to hurt them or take something from them and that is not the case. I am doing this to improve myself for a better me. I like the way this is a guided journal with activities to better me. I am going to keep going back to this when I need a reminder not to fall back into old habits that hurt me before.

My Rating of the Book: 5 Stars
