Journaling Challenge - August

I'm really happy to see so many of you taking part in these monthly journaling challenges. Thank you to everyone who has tagged me in their posts on Instagram or emailed their pages to me.

The challenge for August is all about bringing more happiness into your life. Who couldn't do with a little more of it :)

Journaling Challenge
The Prompts for August


This month's journaling challenge is very kindly supported by CraftStash. They are offering a £50 voucher to spend in their online shop. They stock all kinds of paper crafting and journaling goodies, including my own product range.

Thoughts Behind the Prompts

When I think about bringing more happiness into my life, the first thing I try to do is focus on all the good things that already exist. When I have particularly difficult or stressful days, it's easy to feel that everything is "bad". These are the moments when I rely on my Gratitude Log and Best Moments pages the most. Taking time to reflect on what I already have in my life is a really helpful way of thinking about the good things.

The second and third prompts are all about making time for the activities or moments that always make you happy. For me, most of these are simple things, like listening to music, getting outside, reading a great book or watching a comedy. During August I will be aiming to do some of these every single day.
