Change your story, discover your happiness, and live your dreams starting today

Getting to Good is a life-changing guided journal that will empower you with positivity and help you get back to your happy place when you're feeling down or struggling to feel satisfied or fulfilled.

Research shows that when we feel positive, we think more creatively and develop better solutions to life's challenges. Author and licensed clinical psychologist Lena Walsh created Getting to Good to help you let go of negative thoughts and patterns, and start focusing on the good days, using inspiring writing exercises based on proven psychology methods.

Getting to Good is a happiness journal that will help you cultivate an attitude of gratitude and improve your life using:
  • Feel-good writing prompts—Writing down 10 things you're grateful for, listing things you love about yourself, and describing something that made you laugh recently will help you start focusing on all the good things in your life.
  • Research-backed therapies—Exercises draw from science-based therapeutic methods, including cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and mindfulness.
  • Strategies to be more positive—Regularly expressing positive emotions and feelings leads to happier thought patterns and more appreciation for life. You'll focus on small kindnesses, everyday beauty, and more.

You don't need to carry the weight of your problems around with you. Give yourself permission to start feeling better, and build a life you'll love, with help from Getting to Good.
