- Big Life Journal
It’s absolutely fantastic. Teaching English in Ukraine and its a wonderful teaching tool.
The Big Life Journal just arrived at our house the other day. Being a perfectionist, my son struggles with accepting ownership of his negative emotions and behaviours; according to him, his emotions and behaviours are everyone else’s fault. Last night he struggled and was quite rude (yay pre-teen). Eventually, I had to remove myself from the situation and just got ready for bed. About 1/2 an hour later my son comes into the room with his Big Life Journal. He showed me the pages he filled out and we had a good conversation about them. He was calmer and apologized for his earlier behaviour. He enjoyed seeing where he had a fixed mindset and where he had a growth mindset. It was super cool to see that he could identify that. It was a good conversation and it was nice to see him feel good about himself and see where he could be more open minded. A great start!! Thank you!!!
I am so incredibly thankful for this journal. I can't even express how valuable it's been for us. My daughter has ADD, Aspergers and anxiety and the challenges she's faced in the last 11 years have caused self esteem and depression problems. She's been to counseling and cognitive behavioral therapy with limited success. I've seen 10 times more positive results using this journal than any of the therapy she's received. We go through the journal together which strengthens our relationship and allows me to apply the lessons in the journal to the specifics of her life. She loves using it and I love seeing her grow and feel better while using it. Thank you so much for providing this and all of the other wonderful tools at Big Life Journal.
This journal is really fun to do. I write mine everyday, I find it gives me a big boost of energy. Personally I think writing the journal in the morning is better it gives you a great positive start to your day. So if I were to rate this journal out of ten, I'd give it a ten. This journal has really changed my way of thinking, from a negative attitude, to a positive one!
My daughter has started helping my 12-year-Old grandson with this. She said that so far he is enjoying it. She thinks it is going to be good for him.
