    You want to be happy Of course you do We all doDid you know there are lots of little tricks to instantly make you happier? No they don't often tell us that Well Karen Salmansohn does She not only shares the tricks to happy but she gives you time and space to practice them in this little journal book I've only been practicing for twelve days and I'm already 117% happier What will this book do for you?Percentage figured using a complicated mathematical formula that involves lots of first order differential euations and Gauss Jordan elimination while also considering the binomial coefficients in Pascal's triangle I think you'll have to trust me on this

    I received this book from Blogging for Books but all opinions are my ownFor those of you who don't know I have a lovely mixture of anxiety and depression It's normally kept in check with medicine but sometimes I still have a hard time finding any happy That was a big part of the reason I reuested Instant Happy Journal from Blogging for Books That and my mom suggested it after I told her which books I was consideringWhile I wouldn't say this book is the be all and end all or that it cured me or made me instantly happy I do think that it's helpful and encouragingBefore I start talking about the content I just have to say that this book is just adorable Between the polka dot front the yellow bookmark ribbon and all the different page designs it's likely to bring a smile to your face before you even start reading or writingSimilarly to my A a Day journal there are good prompts and weird ones and ones I have no idea how to even begin answering but overall I'm enjoying it so far I haven't done one prompt per day I'm saving them for days when I need a little boost of happy Such as last Tuesday which SUCKED I wrote out a prompt attempting to not be as sarcastic and cynical as I usually am then my daughter and I made a neon swirl cake She definitely helps on my bad daysA couple examples of prompts are Every human has an unfathomable gift that only meeting life head on will reveal Mark Nepo and facts about how helping others helps you be happy and the magical number is one hundred hours per year then it asks what you've done that week to help someoneAs you can see sometimes it's actual uestions and sometimes it's just uotes I do tend to have a harder time answering the uotes because I'm just not sure what to write especially if I'm in a moodI think that this would be great for all kinds of people If you have a mood disorder like me it can help perk you up sometimes if you're a writer it could definitely help with writing prompts or if you just like daily journalsI gave this journal four out of five stars only because there were a few prompts that just didn't click with me but maybe they'll click with you I think Karen Salmansohn did a great job with this and I'm interested in looking into all her other books on being happy I think they could be interesting

    Instant Happy Journal is full of intuitive creativity and is an excellent book for those who are looking for some creative spark I wholeheartedly recommendI’ve been thinking as of late as we near the end of 2015 life seems to be escaping me Being aware of this reality has led me to feel an urgency to write with a intentional aim and to further express my sentiments both on my blog and on my personal journal However try as I may I cannot seem to get my thoughts down ― fear instantly consumes me as I stare at the dreaded white blank screen and page in front of me Thus I have been looking for journal prompts to help me stir my thoughts a bit Thankfully I stumbled upon this nifty colorful Instant Happy Journal and ― wow This book is jam packed with wonderful ideas and inspiration for writing and self reflectionNot only does it include 365 prompts for writing but within those prompts are motivational uotes that invoke different emotions ― both negative and positive such as these“You don’t have to figure out how to solve all your problems right now Just figure out what you can do to feel better in this moment”“The soul gets stiff when it doesn’t stretch itself daily What have you been doing or what can you do to stretch who you are and grow a little?”“There isn’t a person you couldn’t love if you could read their journal and understand their story Agree or disagree?This last uote really struck me as I came to realize that the accounts and memories we record in our journals truly do read like a novel of our own life; I am so inspired and I intend to start journaling immediately Suffice it to say this brilliant book will make a wonderful gift; I highly recommend itBlog || Facebook || Twitter || Google || Bloglovin'

    This is a cute little book and I’m thrilled to have it in my library I picked it out because I’ve been in a bit of a funk lately and I thought it might help me look at the brighter side of life I need to remind myself of the positive aspects of my life and not dwell upon the struggles and I’m hoping this little journal will help Disclaimer I’ve looked through the book; read the introduction and many of the journal prompts but I have not started the journal yet It is just the beginning of October and being that the book has prompts for an entire year I’ve decided to wait until January 1st to start my journey towards a optimistic selfFirst impression of the book is that it is very cheerful The cover is lovely with its vibrant orange dots that opens up to reveal a short introduction before it dives right into the journal prompts The binding is nice and it opens easily to write your entries in The pages alternate in formatting and colors but all are very stylish and lend well to the happy vibe this book gives off There is a smooth satin ribbon to help you keep your place but I’m almost tempted to skip around to pick the prompt that fits my mood or activities of the day then work from front to back The pages are not pre dated so it would be easy to search out the uote or uestion that fits your personal needs of the day The prompts are a nice mix of serious and whimsical that I just feel might be better utilized by searching out the one that speaks to you that dayThere is not much I can find fault with in this book Being a wordy person perhaps a little larger page so that I can write a longer entry if desired The book is a handy size if you wanted to carry it with you but plan to keep it by my bed or laptop and make this a daily ritual once I start I’ve not tried journaling before so maybe the smaller pages will be perfect for a beginner but I have a feeling they will fill up uickly The book would make a lovely gift as well after all who couldn’t use a little happy in their livesI received this book from Blogging for Books for this review

    Recently I've gotten back into doing daily journaling and by journaling I mean I jot down a brief description of what went on through the day of the lives of my husband my kids and I Sometimes it's a mundane description sometimes there's a lot to say Sometimes it's just a really good outlet for the things that frusterated me in the day What makes this Journal different is that it forces you to focus on the good parts of your day It reminds us how even in the tiniest of moments we are incredibly blessed By thinking on the good things on a daily basis I believe that we slowly start to have a mindset change where instead of finding outselfs feeling so beat down by the cares and stresses of our life but we start to realize that while live is in no way perfect there is something there any small thing there to be happy aboutWhat I Loved The format of this book is just wonderful It not only focuses on the positive but each page is just a little different You have to look at your life from different angles It also stretches your creative muscles and sometimes work hard for the response Of course the journal is only going to be as good as you make it If it becomes an obligation or something that you just fill out because the blanks are there it's not going to be near as good as if you actually decide to spend some time thinking about the daily entry and investing the time to put down a thoughtful answer And imagine the wonderful memory book you'll have at the end of the 365 daysNot So Much NOTHING This is a cute journal and I think each and every person young and old can enjoy thisThe Verdict This book review is appropriately timed because I just found the perfect Christmas present for nearly everyone on your listespecially those 'hard to buy for' people who have just about everything I think that I would love to have this journal yearly for a beautiful positive and encouraging history of my life And my kids would probably love it too

    My Review These two are just too cute Just look at them They're small but packed full of happy There wasn't a better way to start my morning than to have my husband walk in with the journal I had been 'patiently' waiting for it which is something I'm not very good at  The Instant happy book on the left is going to stay on my coffee table forever; every page is insanely awesome They're cutesy motivational pictures and I love them I flipped through it so many times while unpacking this week It really is instant happyThe journal is what I am most excited about It has a journal page for every day of the year I can tell this will be a great addition to my daily routine The first page was fantastic; it opened with a uote from Paulo CoehloI'll post it below and asked to list your little miracles for the day I was able to fill the page after only being awake a few hours It helped put my day in perspective; My husband let me sleep in he made me breakfast in bed the book I had been waiting on came in along with many other little things While it only took a few minutes to write everything down it did help me realize all I had to be happy for today I'm sure I'll be posting about these two books very often You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one Each day is a different one each day brings a miracle of its own It's just a matter of paying attention to this miracle Paulo Coelho
