My son now thinks positive

I recently started the big life journal with my 7 year old son (1.5 weeks back). When we started he would always be negative and have nothing to write for being grateful/happy about. He would always mark the crying smiley for his feeling for the day. This journal has forced him to think positive. He actually wrote in his recent entry that the thing he learnt that day is that he could be anything he wanted. We have also started actually identifying atleast 1 good thing in a day when we always saw nothing going right at all. These were some big deal small steps we are making with the big life journal.

Amazing resource

My son loves this journal. His first journal entry was that he learned that he can learn from failure. If that alone is instilled from this, it’s priceless. So grateful Santa/Dad thought of it!

Big life Jornal ROCKS!

I have given a journal to each of my nurture students and they love them, it’s opened up many conversations, they love colouring the doodles - a mindful activity) and we have flourish time each day so they have time to write,reflect and process their emotions. They love them! Thank you for all you do to help me to help them P.S the posters are very eye catching - I used them to teach resilience, growth mindset and gratitude

I love this journal. It not only helps my son decompress but me as well. It’s a great bonding moment when we’re able to share our feelings.

The Big Life Journal - Daily Edition features activities based on the latest research on growth mindset, brain plasticity, positive psychology, and child development.

Download the research behind the journal HERE.

Here are the main themes included:


Dr. Carol Dweck's research has proven children who develop a growth mindset are more equipped to face challenges. They embrace failures, are eager to try new things, and keep trying until they succeed.


Science shows children who express their emotions in a healthy and positive way are more resilient. Resilient children are braver, more curious, and more adaptable.


Children who show gratitude are happier, less impulsive, and have better relationships with others. Research shows daily gratitude practice can have a profound impact on your child’s physical and emotional health.


Children who learn to be kind are happier and more successful. Teaching children kindness also reduces bullying, helps them improve friendships, and increases their well-being.


Teaching children to love themselves helps build their self-esteem and creates the foundation for lifelong success and happiness.

How does the Big Life Journal - Daily Edition differ from the Big Life Journal — Original?

The Big Life Journal — Daily Edition is independent of the Big Life Journal — Original (either the 1st or the 2nd editions). It can be a great next step if your child already completed the original journals (although completing the original journals is not necessary before working on the Daily Edition).

The Daily Edition is designed to be completed by a child on their own every day (it’s totally okay to skip a day or more as the journal is NOT dated).

Is this journal dated?

It’s not dated.

How long will the journal last?

The journal will last three months if completed every day. When finished your child can get another Daily Edition and complete it again since the journal is not dated and it’s very important to keep the daily practice going.

What age range is this journal for?

We recommend this journal for ages 6-11. For older children, we recommend the Big Life Journal - Tween/Teen Edition.
