HappySelf Journal

A daily journal for children

Empowering children with the habits and skills they need to support their happiness and mental wellbeing.

The HappySelf Journal is a daily journal for children aged 6 to 12, based on scientifically proven methods that promote happiness, develop healthy habits for life and nurture enquiring minds.

Beautifully illustrated and easy to use, with just a few minutes focus each day, children benefit by being encouraged to express gratitude, reflect on their emotions and think about their actions.

The journal has become a much loved part of the bedtime routine and we encourage you to fill it out with your child and use it as as way to process the day and end on a positive. Lovely conversations follow as you read our quote of the day, note your 'top three things' (our take on gratitude practice) and pick your 'emoji of the day'. Each page also have either a challenge (like write your own positive quote or affirmation) or our positive checklists which encourage kindness, growth mindset and good habits.

There are 3 months worth of daily journaling pages as well as our 'fun pages' at the front which children can fill out anytime.

Our story

Loved around the world

Hello! I’m Francesca, a mum of 2, living in beautiful Kent.

I created the journal because I was fed up of reading daily reports in the press of how our kids are growing up stressed that I really felt I wanted to do something to help children develop healthy habits as they grow up in this increasingly busy and switched on world.

Since our launch in 2018 we have shipped tens of thousands of journals to over 100 countries and are used in schools around the UK and beyond. Our journals have been translated into 7 languages.

We are so proud to have over 250 amazing reviews on our social media and to have been featured on BBC South East as well as The Daily Telegraph.
