Understand the Power of Positivity With 4 Spiral Bound Books
We all experience negative thoughts, which is completely normal. The problem arises when we start to give in to that negativity and believe it. Our brains are wired to be problem solvers, but they can easily fall into overdrive and create problems, concerns, and worries that aren’t even there.
When we have a thought, our brains create a neural pathway, and
whenever that thought is repeated, that neural pathway becomes stronger, easier to follow, and easier to believable, which feeds into our negative thought loops.
The good thing is, it works both ways! Positive thinking can also become second nature. There are tonnes of tools out there to help, but here are four excellent spiral-bound books to get you going. Harness the power of positivity, and start changing your life today!
The practice of giving gratitude is not a new one, but many of those who haven’t tried it are often cynical that this simple activity will actually make a difference. But, there’s a reason why it’s become so popular - it works! This journal is an excellent guide to helping you start your gratitude practice. All you need are 5 minutes out of your day to answer 4 quick questions. Simple!
What makes this gratitude journal unique is that the prompts are different each day. Rather than repeating the instruction “write down three things you are grateful for today,” it invites you to look at your life in a variety of ways. For example, it may ask you to journal on “Something that worked out much better than I’d hoped” or write about “An unforgettable memory I treasure.”

Filled with blanked-out swear words and friendly advice, this is the perfect journal for those who want a more down-to-earth approach. The pages are also dotted with inspirational quotes and cute designs, ready to be colored in if you want to commit to that extra bit of mindfulness.
