The Positive Book

Okay, so I remember having this idea AGES ago, and recently noticed people have started a ‘Positive Book’, to help them feel more optimistic when they feel pessimistic. 


So, what is a Positive Book?! 

To me (and this could vary between people). A Positive Book is where you can record things, such as;

  • Memories
  • Positive/Inspirational/Motivation Quotes
  • Photos
  • Drawings
  • Song Lyrics
  • The Positive things people see and think of, YOU

Recording things like this can help us start to feel more optimistic. When you feel down, you can read through it, and the smirks of a smile will soon be taking shape, and you may even giggle to yourself.

What you need;

  • Notepad (any size A4/A5/A6)
  • Coloured Pens! (Making it bright and colourful makes it more positive)
  • Quotes, Pictures, Memories, Things that make YOU happy! (You can find these on the internet, or you can ask friends, family members etc to give you their favorite quote)
  • A quiet space! (Having a quiet space can help you relax, and think more positively then being congested with negative vibes around you)
  • Finally, put on some really upbeat, positive music! This will get you jazzing!
  • (You can use lots of glitter as well to make is sparkly!)

REMEMBER; this is YOUR space to a more optimistic outcome. YOU are special. YOU are beautiful… and YOU can do ANYTHING you want to when you’re more optimistic!! 

One to get you started; ”Chin up, chin up, everybody loves a happy face. Wear it. Have it. It’ll brighten up the darkest place. Twinkle, sparkle, let a little sunshine in. You’ll be on the right side, looking at the bright side, up with your chinny-chin-chin.” - Charlotte’s Web

Good Luck!
