If you’re looking for mindful guided journaling with a soothing layout, this is much more that than it is meditative. If you’re looking for meditation, I would personally look elsewhere.
Some of the journaling prompts in the book -
“What negative thoughts do you repeat to yourself? How can you reframe those thoughts to make them positive?”
“How do you currently cope with uncertainty? What are some new, healthy ways you can hope?”
“Think of a problem that has been causing you anxiety. Describe it as you would to a confidant, then give yourself honest advice.”
“Think of a recent argument you had with a close friend or family member. Describe the situation from the other person’s perspective.”
“Describe a time when you cleaned out a closet space, the garage, your car, or your home. Think of things that were difficult to throw away. How did you feel once the job was done and the space clean?”
As a general rule, I don’t want to think about worrisome things right before I go to bed since I like to sleep and not stay awake for hours suffering the three T’s - tossing, turning, and thinking. While many of the entries are more positive based, the quotes I’ve shared above are some (not all) of the more negative prompts within this title. Also known as things I don’t want to address right before trying to sleep.
While I’m sure this will be perfectly helpful for many others, it wasn’t for me.
