Book Description :
YOUR CHECKLIST FOR MAKING POSITIVE CHANGES IN THIS YEAR What do you want to accomplish? And how can you overcome what's holding you back? This beautiful undated journal of weekly lists will help nurture self-expression and self-development. Each of the four seasonal sections includes 13 listing prompts with plenty of space to write your own lists, and challenges to help you take action and make your dreams a reality. With perfectly timed listing prompts that meet you where you are throughout the different seasons of the year, this journal will open up new avenues of self-knowledge and help you celebrate, enjoy, and take ownership of your own life. WHY YOU SHOULD TRY IT Sometimes our goals in life can be elusive. But research suggests that building optimism about the future can motivate people to work toward that desired future and thus make it more likely to become a reality. This exercise asks you to imagine your life going as well as it possibly could, then write about this best possible future. By doing so, research suggests that you'll not only increase your happiness in the present but pave the way for sustained happiness down the line. HOW TO DO IT Take a moment to imagine your life in the future. What is the best possible life you can imagine? Consider all of the relevant areas of your life, such as your career, academic work, relationships, hobbies, and/or health. What would happen in these areas of your life in your best possible future? This exercise is most useful when it is very specific-if you think about a new job, imagine exactly what you would do, who you would work with, and where it would be. The more specific you are, the more engaged you will be in the exercise and the more you'll get out of it.
