Non Fiction Review: Positive Thinking

Positive Thinking by Katherine Flannery
Positive Thinking: A 52-Week Journal of Profound Prompts, Inspiring Quotes, and Bold Affirmations
by Katherine Flannery

4 out of 5 stars


This guided journal gives prompts for maintaining a positive attitude and managing difficult emotions. It is full encouraging quotes that are thoughtful and uplifting!

The layout of this book is not quite what I expected. It is laid out with one section for each of the 52 weeks, with one activity, journal prompt, or meditation to do each week. Week 1 is a journal prompt with some space for writing in a list of attributes and characteristics about yourself, and the encouragement to re-frame any negative thoughts about yourself into positive and compassionate thoughts. Week 2 is a prompt to draw a decorative mantra or affirmation of your choosing, and there is a breathing exercise to try.
Each week switches between a writing prompt, and a drawing prompt and meditation. Most of the writing prompts are lists, and I DO love a good list! The drawing prompts vary from doodling your own fingerprint to drawing an abstract that represents your future. My favorite is the one that says to draw yourself as a strong tree, because that is the only thing I can draw… trees.

The design used on the cover is used throughout the book on the week title pages with inspirational quotes for each week, and on the meditation pages. The journal pages have blank lines to write on, and the drawing pages have plenty of blank space for coloring and doodling. I really love how the book is arranged!

I think this book would really help someone to take a moment of reflection and embrace a positive attitude!
