Forward Thinking:

A wellbeing & happiness journal

Look inside


Forward Thinking is a unique journal that draws on fascinating and heart warming research into wellbeing, happiness and fulfilment to promote a positive view on life.

Forward Thinking offers a year of weekly suggested mindful activities punctuated by motivational quotes to help people thrive and flourish, living the life they wish to lead and be in their element.

Featuring original artwork Forward Thinking is designed to enhance and improve wellbeing, happiness and fulfilment in 6 key areas:

  1. Health, Fitness & Wellbeing
  2. Job Satisfaction
  3. Community
  4. Finances
  5. Personal Activities
  6. Relationships

Many people believe they will be happy and feel fulfilled when they are rich, married, promoted, etc. However, all the external factors in our lives will only account for 10% of the variance of our happiness with some 50% determined by our genetics. The good news is that the remaining 40% of our happiness can be relatively easily influenced by our intentional activities, how we think and how we behave. Happiness and wellbeing is not about what happens to you, but how you choose to respond to what happens.

Developed by Peter Coxon, a consultant psychologist who focuses on personal and leadership development, Forward Thinking helps you focus on the 40% and by increasing this it may, in turn, positively influence the 50%. In other words, it can help raise your self-awareness, your mindset and mindfulness. It can help you plan and review how your life is unfolding and help you make positive differences to your life that aid personal development.

Forward Thinking is one of three hand-painted journals in the Mindful Collection. Discover This Is Me: A Mindful, Autobiographical Journal and Wonderful Days: A Mindful, Daily Positivity Journal.
