Do One Thing Every Day That Makes You Happy: A Journal Reviews
Such a simple concept, the directions laid out in the title of this book, and yet something so many of us fail to do. Too often, we tie happiness in with the big things in life, letting the little joys slip by us unnoticed. The premise of "Do One Thing..." that grabbed me was the idea of deliberately, mindfully focusing on the little things. Maybe because I've dealt with chronic illness now for so long, the concept resonated with me strongly. I highly recommend this book to anyone, but particularly those who might be struggling with tough circumstances. I really, truly love this book. It's a good way to easily get in touch with happiness from the tiny things up, and sometimes we all need just that. I received this book from the Blogging for Books program in exchange for this review.
I really like books like this because they are fun to look back on. This type of book would make a great gift or is fun for yourself. Each page you write the date and then do the creative random task it gives you. It is simple, doesn't take a lot of time and is fun. If keeping a journal isn't for you I recommend picking up this book. For a fun and creative book, this is a good one!Five stars. "I received this book from Blogging for Books for free. All opinions are my own"
I absolutely love the format of this book. The prompts are quick and varied, and the illustrations are fun. I obviously have not finished this book, but I flipped through it and I think I will definitely stick to filling this out every day for a year.
Well, I like the *idea* of it...(Full disclosure: I received a free copy of this book for review through Blogging for Books. Click on the images to embiggen.)-- 3.5 stars --As a naturally gloomy and anxious person - one of my nicknames, and one I wear proudly, is Kelly Killjoy - a "happiness journal" seems like something I could really use in my life. I tend to only journal when things are going sideways, carrying merrily on my way when everything's coming up roses (or Dave Kim, as it were), resulting in a record of my life that's skewed heavily toward the negative. And that's no fun, right?Do One Thing Every Day That Makes You Happy: A Journal is a pretty swell idea. From its bright yellow cover, decked out in shiny silver and vibrant rainbow text, to its white and orange insides, Do One Thing Every Day That Makes You Happy more or less oozes unicorns and birthday cake and that one REM song. Each page features a happy quote or graphic, along with a writing prompt inspired by said quote. There's a space to pencil in the date for each exercise and, with the exception of the New Year's themed ones, you can pretty much pace yourself how you want: work through each page in chronological order; skip around to your heart's content; or only write when you feel inspired (though skipping days kind of negates the "do one thing every day" part, don't you think?).The prompts run the gamut; here are just a few to give you a taste:* Where scratching felt sweetest day.* A pleasure of mine that no one can understand.* My life would seem longer without.* Why I laughed at myself today.* A luxury I don't need in order to be happy.As much as I love the idea of this journal, as per usual with Clarkson Potter journals, the execution leaves something to be desired. The journal is very small - about 6" x 4.5" - making it somewhat difficult to write in. Additionally, many (but not all) of the quotes/graphics take up an inordinate amount of space on the page - usually somewhere around 2/3 to 4/5 of a page, leaving precious little room for your response! The lines are pretty small too, maybe college ruled at best. I wish they'd go all out and make some oversized journals, preferably with nice, roomy lines - and lay-flat binding, too, while we're dreaming! Until then, this one will do.
