Getting to Good: A Guided Journal
Dr. Elena Welsh’s Getting to Good: A Guided Journal really helped change my mindset through journaling exercises. Writing is my therapy anyway, but after an especially challenging year, having guidance like Dr. Welsh’s prompts provide has given me the tools for gaining a more positive attitude.
Fun and Varied Prompts
I like the varied format of this book, which includes open-ended prompts, uplifting quotes, graphics, and specific activities to complete. The soft feel of the bookcover is a plus for me, along with the portable size and pretty colors and design. These details make the book a pleasure to use and entice me to spend time with it each day.
I also like that the author is a licensed clinical psychologist, and the book reflects her expertise in the way the prompts seem to strategically build upon each other.
This guided journal includes:
- Feel good prompts―close the gap between you and happiness with exercises and reflections.
- Proven therapies―based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Positive Psychology, Motivational Interviewing, and Mindfulness.
- Positive strategies―help you focus on gratitude, small kindnesses, and the beauty of everyday life.
“Getting to Good is your road map to feeling better, happier, and more present with proven-effective therapeutic exercises and journaling prompts. Empowered with positivity and gratitude, you’ll discover how good it feels to let go of the bad thoughts and feelings and start writing about the good days to come.”
Getting to Good: A Guided Journal has been a welcome addition to my daily routine and is proving to be a big help in renewing my optimism about life.
