About a Positive Jar

Have you heard of a positive jar? 


The positive jar is similar to the positive book! Actually they’re very similar. 

The purpose of a positive jar is to put lots of bits and bobs in it (will list a few) and then when you’re having a bad day/feeling low, you take something out of the jar and then read it, to hopefully put a smile on your face and make your day a little brighter.

What you can put in your jar, and it’s totally up to you!

  • pom poms
  • glitter
  • quotes
  • memories
  • photos
  • life sayings
  • affirmations
  • nail polish

It’s YOUR jar so you can put which ever you like. Maybe a few small smellies so if you pick a smelly out, you can have a warm relaxing bath. 

You can personalise your jar, make it pretty, or you can keep it plain. You can use lots of bright colours and make it stand out. 

You can also start something in the New Year, maybe we can call it a ”New Year Jar”.

I’ll combine it in this blog. 

1st January 2014, get yourself a good size jar. When you have a good day, or when you have good memories. Put it in the jar. At the end of 2014 open your jar and read all the amazing and wonderful things you did during the year.
